Thought I would give everyone an update on Shorty and his solitary life. Yesterday dh brought home two hens and. . .another rooster. A little bit younger, smaller fellow, but still competition for Shorty. The friend that gave Shorty to us has a few extra chickens and brought these by for us. One of the hens has already hatched out two batches of chicks, so I'm hoping that she will do the same for us. I really prefer for the hens to hatch chicks themselves, rather than me order the little things and raise them myself. If they have a momma, she can keep an eye on them all day instead of the three or four times I go up to check on them.
Two hens and two roosters is not the best ratio, but with the coyote population and all the hunting dogs around here, we will take what we can get. I'm just happy that Shorty finally has some poultry company!
Everyone have a great day!
