Well now it's the darn crowing. I have one and I'm not ashamed to say that when I hear him crow I know everything in the coop is ok. In fact I get nervous if I don't. He's a bantam and he's not too loud, I think, but if I get a standard I'm concerned the whole road will hear him and not be as pleased as me. Personally I rather hear him than the garbage music nextdoor, which really isn't next door, sorta two houses away.
Why do I hate my rooster this week?
Hmmm, let me think!
Oh, yeah, I remember now after my having been in pain for a week and barely able to walk. I spun around and pulled a tendon in the calf of my leg when the @#$%^&& acted like he was going to attack me.
He's really lucky that I like him most of the time.
I LOVE roos!! So does my husband! We think we're the luckiest people on earth because some kind soul dumped one on our property in February. That's what got us into chickens!
We have 9 roos and we love every one of them. Heck my husband even replied to a Craigslist ad for some roos. Someone said that if someone didn't take them, they were going to eat them, hubby went and got them!
