False Advertising

Purchased as females, three of the eight chicks we purchased in February ended up being roosters.   Boo!  We kicked them out of the hen house when we discovered one of our hens hiding and almost pecked to death.  We dressed her wounds and gave her a shot of penicillin (we guessed on the dosage!) and she’s doing much better.  They free range, but never far from the ladies.  We hear roosters in the distance from a neighbor’s farm and now have our own crowing here at home.  For now…

    Ooo…send me some of those pretty tail feathers!! I’ve got a hat to adorn! ;D jk Sorry to hear about the mix up. I bet they can be annoying. I can hear some calling from our far off neighbors. Wouldn’t want them near me. I’m a late sleeper. 🙂
