New Chickens in Town…or the Coop

This post may contain affiliate or advertiser links. Read my full disclosure policy here.

We finally fixed the coop and are attempting another round of chickens. We debated starting with chicks again, but figured that we should test the coop safety on a batch of chickens we weren’t as emotionally tied to.

I know it sounds harsh, but it’s true.

Meet the new girls in town.

Each week we seem to learn something new about chickens. Last week we had the windows open in the house and heard crowing. Which is slightly problematic, since we have four HENS.

Betcha didn’t know that in the absence of a rooster, one of the hens will ‘man-up’ and take on characteristics of a rooster, eh? Yeah. Neither did we.

Crowing. Attempting to do other things to hens that only a rooster should do.

I love living in the ‘country’.
