Last fall I posted about the rooster hadn't planned on. You can read about it here if you'd like: http://darylconner.blogspot.com/2015/10/congratulations-its-a.html
I have had bad luck with roosters. They are OK for a while, then they decide they want to kill me. I don't appreciate having animals that I feed and shelter trying to poke my eyes out.
The hens have matured beautifully, too.
The chickens provide excellent insect control. I rarely see a flea or tick on my pets, and for that I give the poultry much credit. And those eggs... deep yellow yolks, firm whites. Delicious. I delight in giving a dozen to a customer or friend. They are always a welcome gift.
I'm awfully fond of my chickens. Yes, Harrison Ford rooster, too.
