    Ohhh the drama!
    Finally introduced my the two hens I hatched out to the flock... Poor girls. Snatched up in the middle of the night from the cardboard box they like to sleep in and took them out to the big bird coop so everyone could wake up together. Well turns out they ain't so poor! One new hen has taken over the coop and is perched up on a bin GROWLING at the flock! The rest are literally standing out in the rain and won't go in there!! I found the other hen hiding behind the coop door (ambush?).

    So I picked them up and set them by the feeder to make sure they ate. The rest of the birds (who usually flock me when I go out to feed) kept peeking around the corner of the door... New hen growled and almost choked doing so, the old birds ran for their dear lives! One of the roosters who is clearly distressed decided to attack me so my muck boots have a few new scratches (probably occurred when we got into a kicking match) and then he decided (for the umptheenth time) that he was no match for me. Growler stood there the whole time growling and choking on feed... I really like this plucky bird!

    I got three roosters out of the same hatch... They are the sweetest birds, now out in their own coop and run. I have to put them in the freezer. Ugh, I REALLY like the "Three Amigos"! Going to be hard!

    I have GREEN chickens!

    Kids are seriously convinced that Leprechauns made their two white chickens green. Hubby and I had a good ol' time out in the dark with a can of green hairspray!

    Well, it happened. Roo Man Choo aka Roo De Roo, lost his mind and his happy home this weekend. I was hoping, since he made it to a year old, that he'd not lose his brain and decide to start attacking. But no, he decided he needed to start flogging me. He got me twice on Thursday and I had a CTJ with him, but without much hope my experience has been that once they start that's the way they finish, and so when on Friday he came at me again, I said, "Enough". I took him to the local everything auction and sold him Saturday morning, with full disclosure. I hated to do it, I actually kind of like this roo, as opposed to Roostah C who educated me to the ways of aggressive roosters so he had to go. Dumb bird!

    They are REALLY convinced because the lil kiddo only saw the rooster as green (hen was camped out in a nesting box this morning) and so when the hen appeared an hour later green too, she thought the Leprechauns had come back and her father and I were inside with her that entire hour.

    Oh shoot DC, did he at least fetch a decent price? How much did you get?
    Maybe the "Three Amigos" need to go that route... I'm supposed to be eating them, but I just CAN'T DO IT!

    Delfina, that is PRICELESS!

    No, priceless was when we stuck the two back in the coop and the other 16 hopped off the perch and gathered around them staring. WTH happened to you two!!??

    It seems to have knocked Snowball the nasty roo (only to chickens, he's terrified of people) down a peg. He's been hanging out at the edge of the group today, not chasing the hens and attacking the other 3 roosters.

    He did ok, went to guy who thought he was the prettiest thing ever, for $15, which I actually thought was a LOT more than I would get for him. So....yeee hah!!! I think I got lucky because he was the only sexually mature bird there yesterday. It's really quiet around here today, I miss his "Rrrrrrrroooo oooooh ooooh oooh!" But, not going to replace him, since I let them free range and I'm always out in the yard/pasture with 'em, I really don't like having to be watching my back 24/7. He was really good with his girls which is why I went ahead and sold him to an old farmer who'll keep him contained in a more conventional setting.

    Delfina, those chickens are adorable! Wish I had a couple white ones that I could do that with, then could explain to all the little kids that green chickens is where my 'green' eggs come from.

    That's why I don't raise eggs. There is no way that I could eat them. Even if somebody else killed and cleaned them, I couldn't eat them.
