Rooster!


















His name is Rooster said in a Carol Burnett voice yelling at her brother in the movie "Annie".

Oh, he just looks like he's full of attitude. Make sure your husband is spending a lot of time with him now or you'll pay for it later. Roopert is my baby, but if Jim or my son come 'round, he will wait until their backs are turned and totally "jump" them from behind. I don't completely understand rooster psychology, but I guess he's seeing them as some kind of masculine threat. ugh. Roopert already had a tentative place on our farm - what makes him think attacking "big daddy" is the right thing to do??!! LOL

Danni: Amazingly, the non chicken man has been spending time with all of the birds. He especially likes Rooster. Sooo, hopefully they can form a lasting bond!

Perhaps Roopert doesn't realize just how precarious his situation is?

It's funny (and sweet) how our husbands can surprise us at times, isn't it? Hopefully, his added effort with the birds will keep Rooster from seeing him as competition later. Seriously, though, what is Roopert thinking...clearly, he has NO idea how precarious his existence here has been from the get-go! Stupid chicken. :-)

What a wonderful chicken coop. You are giving me ideals. My sister has chickens and supplies all of us with various colors and sizes of eggs. She has a mixed batch and one large house with a yard. Some are running outside free but most are confined to the yard for their own safety. We have lots of Red-tailed hawks.

Gail: Thank you, we are loving it so far. Now if I could just get those chickens to be brave and go out into the tractor. There's lots of green grass and bugs if they would just get out in the thing! We have lots of red-tails too, thus the tractor!
