    I caught Nugget again this morning, trying to leave. He'd packed a bag with scratch, his favorite dish liquid bottle, and he'd stuffed Red in there too! I just don't understand why he would want to leave a perfectly good home where he is treated like a king! His list of demands is just too much:

    1. More hens
    2. Less roosters
    3. Larger dish liquid bottles
    4. A stuffed BR to sleep with
    5. A roost on top of the coop, his is too small
    6. Curly fries for lunch every day!

    What do I do with him????

    You have some interesting roos. Didn't they recently try to violate your old Pooh Bear after removing it from the clothesline where you had hung it to dry after the cat had tried to bury it in the litterbox?

    How is Pooh now, anyway? Is he being kept safe from unwanted advances?
