    After 4 days in the "care" of USPS my roosters are here. The got here around 8:30 this morning and seem to be healthy and energetic. They are crowing like no body's business LOL.
    They are so big and beautiful. I am so happy they are finally at there new home and happily strutting around there run.
    I have been waiting so long to hear a rooster's crow in my yard and now two of them are crowing away I LOVE IT!!!! They are much better crowers than my DH LOL.
    Here they are

    thank you sooo much KRturpie for the boys and the care you gave them I am so happy to have them. They will live out a long and happy life here with us.

    They are partridge rocks. I am planning on breeding them with my partridge girls in the spring and hatch out a few. They are so beautiful I'm sure they will have beautiful babies. Plus I just love hearing roosters crow. It is like hearing a fireplace crackle to me...comforting.

    Wow! What an ordeal. I was disappointed that they shipped late... but, to Tampa, FL! Good grief! USPS was very apologetic and said that this is rare, but I am concerned with some policy issues. I might post something about it later.

    Anyway, I am so glad that they finally got to Tucson in one piece this morning. It was also good that we could coordinate to get them to where they needed to be. Thank you for getting them water and care as soon as possible. They really look happy in their new home.

    Btw, jeaucamom asked me for fertilized eggs, but our pullet is only just starting, so we missed out on that opportunity. But, if you have any extra, you might contact her.

    Wow! So, they ARE both crowing. My DD said as much, but I didn't believe her. I guess that they really do get along well. Their sister missed them almost immediately. She kept poking her head in the coop looking for them and I think that she's had a panic attack or two since. But, she has some new girlfriends to keep her company and they seemed to getting along fine.

    I had promised some farewell pictures that I took last Sunday before their journey and here are a few.

    First here are the brothers looking quite dapper.

    and here is a shot with Buttercup (can't leave her out):

    Here's my DD standing by their old home, where they grew up:

    Which right now looks like this (they're so lucky to be in the sunny SW now):



    Here it is on the inside,

    You can see Buttercup, our PR pullet, and two EE's we got from Crunchie. It's just below freezing, but is supposed to warm a tad and start raining later. Blah. The reddish glow that you can see inside the coop is a heat lamp, which has only raised the temp to about 35 degrees. Overall, it's a lot warmer today than before. Good thing that we boosted our chicken's corn intake. I guess that the roos can ramp down from that now.
