And the Chicken Report

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Last time, I showed you our first baby goats of the year. This time, I’ll update you on our chicken news. We got our Dominque chicks in September, so they’re almost 5-months old, and pretty much gown up. 

First pullet egg laid just the other day.

Of the original twelve chicks, nine turned out to be roosters. We only keep one rooster, so over the past couple of weeks, Dan has been thinning the flock. Here’s our keeper. 

He was the least bold of the bunch, and so became a likely candidate for keeping. Bold cockerels are often thought to be friendly, but in our experience, these usually end up being the most aggressive. They’re bold because they have no respect for the humans. We prefer roosters that respect our presence with a little distance. In return, we respect theirs. 

Each of the three hens seemed to have her own personal rooster, all of which are gone, so now everybody has to adjust. The two in the above photo now allow Mr. Rooster to tag along, but the third hen has been more reluctant and slower to hang out with the “flock.”

Mrs. Lone Chicken keeps Dan company while he works on the buck barn.

My ideal number of chickens is six hens and a rooster, but we’ll take what we’ve got. We’re happy to have fresh eggs again and hopefully, one these will brood some eggs to hatch! Even so, four is actually the perfect number for the chicken tractor, which we’ll put to use this summer.
