Removing The Trouble Maker

That handsome guy that you see above this post is now living out in the country with one of my friends from church. He continued to pester our hens so badly that we lost one of our new additions. It was really hard to hold a dying chicken on my hand and know it was my fault because I didn't get of the beautiful rooster earlier. I guess I was pretty attached to him.  He was so pretty to look at with his iridescent purple feathers that it took this awful day with the dying chicken to give him up.

Now, our chicken yard and cook is pretty calm and all of the hens are getting settled in. We now have 10 hens 1 cockerel (not crowing or mating rooster) and then we have our bantys; 3 hens and 1 rooster. The cockerel is getting prettier every day and he is sweet as can be. He will come up to us and cuddle so maybe he will be a better gentleman and the ladies will take to him good. Time will tell.

Have you ever had this kind of experience. Write me a comment and tell me about it. I love chicken stories.
