    my two roos are crowing now. Bobthebuilder (brahma) now has a whole crow - he used to sound like he was getting cut off. Silkie roo went from not crowing to crowing in what seemed like overnight.

    I witnessed my first chicken mating - unintentionally. was bringing in groceries and the chickens were in the grassy area and I just happened to see odd movement out of the corner of my eye.

    An opossum almost got one of my hens (I think my silkie) but I have noticed since then, it has been easier to get the chickens in their crate earlier.

    My daughter renamed our brahma hen to Wendy to go with Bobthebuilder.

    Speaking of Bobthebuilder, he likes to walk up to the back door and look in (so does Wendy). which amuses the kiddoes and provides a distraction while I'm getting them ready in the mornings.

    Funny to see them mate, isn't it? Kinda like "wham, bam, thank you ma'am." lol

    Thanks for all the updates! Glad the opossum didn't get your babies!
