|Rufus, Chess and Twinkle out for an early morning stroll.|
|Our beautiful ram, Magnus, right before he started knocking down the hollyhocks.|
adorable little Easter chicks grew up and started crowing, it was pretty obvious we had a problem. Three mouths to feed and no resulting eggs. When we were given a few older hens who did lay beautiful blue eggs, the problem only got worse. It wasn't a week and the girls were practically plucked bald by overzealous males. So, we made our choice of rooster (Twinkle gets to stay) and the other two are now headless, featherless and frozen in our freezer, ready to eat.
|Twinkle (he was supposed to be a hen), Snow and Strawberry all molted and happy (and you can see the size difference and how the two hens would have trouble keeping safe from three roosters who were gigantic next to them!).|
|Not many chickens get that much freedom!|
