Has anybody here read Enslaved By Ducks by Bob Tarte? It's one of my favorite books. I don't think he gets chickens until the sequel but it is absolutely worth reading.

LOL With all the animals I have, I cannot tell you the last time I took the time to sit down and read a magazine, never mind a whole book. I used to absolutely LOVE to read, so maybe this winter when it's cold and dark and not fit to be out. Enslaved is the right word, they just grab you by the heart and won't let go, and you're happy to let them do it.

Horsecrazygirl, You have some cute girls there. What an interesting hen Broken Beak is!

Something interesting happened the other day. Spike, my extra rooster, must have been spending his past three years on the farm building up some crazy good karma! A local mom had fifteen young RIR hens and was looking for a rooster to go along with them. Spike is so gentle that he won the position pretty easily. He now has fifteen virgin pullets all to himself. Hah!

When I set him down with them he didn't know what to do. There has always been an unfortunate 2:1 ratio of roosters to hens at my place (because silkies taste bad; you can't really eat the extras) and therefore no hen is ever left unguarded. I think he must have assumed that there was a big rooster in charge of those girls who was coming back at any moment, and that when he did return Spike would be getting a beating for hanging around his hens. So Spike was wandering all around the yard trying to prove his innocence to the imaginary giant rooster while a whole flock of hens trotted after him. It was hilarious to watch. I can only imagine how proud that plucky bantam is going to be with himself once he figures out what's going on.
