Leopold is the Rooster around here and he wants everyone to know it. The girls are starting to show signs of his “attention”. He has also taken to occasionally charging me, something I don’t like and won’t tolerate. Danni at Critter Farm states that the best way to cure a rooster of this bad habit is to give them a good long hug. We shall see…
The Guineas have also taken to chasing the girls around, it gets so bad that I have to sometimes intervene to stop the bad behavior! Did you know that Guineas can run really fast? Check out this link over at Verde Farm!
Lucy seems to be taking the brunt of Leopold and the Guineas bad manners. See the wear her wing and tail feathers have taken? I am going to get her a chicken saddle from over at Mandy’s Rabbit Ranch. The saddle should protect her feathers so that they can grow out good and healthy.
This last week I have been getting about 7 eggs per day from 8 hens, and the weather has been terrible. The girls have been doing a great job and I really appreciate it!
