You can probably tell by the knowing look in Hortense's eye
that she has hatched her eggs...seven little chicks.
So, to the maths:
21 chooks + 7 new chicks = 28
28 - 4 Araucana roosters that went to the farm = 24
24 - Zorro* = 23
*Zorro - the araucana rooster that is going to live with Phoebe at Ballynoe Cottage
|The boys weren't too excited about going to the farm.|
Here are Jenny's chicks, there are 4 of them.
They are 8 weeks old and independent now.
|I am loving this one...it looks like an adult but is only tiny as yet.|
Betcha it's a rooster...the only white one in the batch.
That makes 11 chicks/teenagers all up.
So that will be another 5 or 6 roosters to deal with.
I do wish we had the stomach for killing them.
It is such a waste giving them away.
That will leave about 16 or 17 hens
in Rocky's harem.
