It was quite peaceful around the chicken coop today. One of Paul’s co-workers took the remaining of the pecker-headed roosters. He has a new batch of hens and wanted a rooster for his new ladies. Lucky for him as he would have ended up as soup (the rooster, not the co-worker) as soon as I had time to butcher his butt.
So now we’re down to one rooster here at Krazo Acres. The hens, rooster & I are all much happier now. Our egg count has been steadily climbing for the past few weeks; today’s tally was nine. It’s nice to have enough eggs for the family again and extra to sell to help with chicken feed costs.
And fresh milk is just around the corner.
Barn Cat has also been coming around on a regular basis. He even “meowed” back to me last night when I was bringing the cat chow out to him. I feel so special.
