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!

"This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24


  1. Rosemary,
    Oh my goodness! I just found your blog from smilng's, and am so glad I did! What a pleasure you are!

    I, too, am a Christian and am daily blessed by my walk. I also have lived in Arkansas, though I now live in Texas. And we have the same blog template. Truly we must be "sisters"!

    I'll definitely be checking in on you as time allows. Please feel free to drop by my corner of the internet anytime you have the time and inclination.

    In Him,

  2. I love the colors in the roosters. Chickens are just so fun to watch, they have a mind of there own. Have a good day.

  3. I hope they all stay safe and you get many lil' chickens with them if that is what you desire!

  4. Yippie for Shorty, so glad he has a family now and what a handsome family too!

  5. Just yesterday we visited our annual Strawberry Festival in Plant City, FL. I was so happy to see my 9 year old really enjoy the 4-H poulty exhibitions! We are city slickers, so the fairs and festivals are great for him! We saw one colorful one which looks like your rooster there. Beautiful colors!

  6. Oh how wonderful! Shorty is no longer alone. All of your hens, and the roosters are so pretty. Love your photos.
