Act Casual, Maybe She Won't Notice

Miss Puffy Cheeks! 
What Are You Doing?
Guard duty you claim?
By the way, keep the tail in
I saw the mess on the floor.

Yep, they discovered the lip of the brooder.
Now a bunch jump up and then down,
Up and Down all day long.
So far no one has jumped to the floor.
It's a matter of time.
OOps, spoke too soon!

This was a three weeks ago,
a more innocent time.
It looks like we have one rooster
and the rest are gals.

 Bird tries to keep up
but his feathers are a bit wonky,
I'm not so sure what sort of hairstyle it is
but it's mighty strange.

Out in the coop batch #1 awaits the general population
and batch #2 will go into protective custody.
I should have incubated a month ago!!
Bird will be very lonely until batch #3 hatches.

  Some of the older gang.
    Now that we are down to only one rooster
(aside from the chick)
maybe the hens will grow more feathers back!

Morning Kathy, love the idea of them being in prison, so funny!!! When we go away on Saturday to see our friends in Scotland they will have new chicks too and our Boys love helping. Have a great day. Susie x

Susie- thanks for visiting. I bet your boys love the chicks, chicks are so cute and funny when they are young.

Ilona- thank you for your comment, I'll have to try and translate it. I did pop over to your blog and saw that wonderfully colored bird, perhaps some type of pheasant relation?

He looks like our rooster, well before he got old, he is kind of ragged, ragged but happy as he is the only rooster. One rooster is the best way to go, especially if you are the surviving rooster.

They look so cute. Your rooster is so handsome.
