....from goat bums. And a nap. Thank gawd I've only got two pregnant does this year.
Anywho, I haven't talked about my injured rooster in a while and thought I'd give you all an update because I just know you've been all been all nervously wondering if the next rooster post would be a good one or a bad one. So I'll save you the anxiety and suspense and tell you he's doing ok. Although he's still really underweight, he's perked up significantly in the last week. He's been carrying himself a little higher, tail feathers in the air and all again. Although he still stays away from the younger roosters, I've seen him all the way up by the front porch on occasion, picking through the vehicle-pulverized acorn pieces on the driveway. I even saw him "run" a little distance when I tossed a half-eaten apple out in the yard.
Still no crowing or hen-wooing though. I wonder if he had more than just his foot and pride injured. He's becoming quite the shadow though; following me around hoping for some good scraps or his own little pile of chicken scratch. Which I usually provide him with; sucker that I am.
BTW, I was just out there at the barn and Nettie was just laying down in the hay. Took her out so she could relieve herself, the she walked back in the kidding pen on her own. Probably thinking I would give her another scoop of grain or something.
Which I did; sucker that I am.
