It seems with almost 80 chickens
that I am always re-arranging!
The Ameraucana roosters are now occupying their bachelor pad.
They have been sequestered inside
until I am sure they will return there to roost each night.
I am thinking that about a week should
assure that they identify this coop as home.
Thankfully, the weather is very cool,
so they do not mind being indoors.
Also, I love this coop...
it has great cross-ventilation
with a window in front and back.
We also moved the Ameraucana hens (6)
into the larger chicken pen.
It was a very smooth transition...
The six chickens on the right are the Ameraucanas.
We also moved the three "hens" that I bought
from a neighbor a few weeks ago.
As it turns out, one of these hens was also a rooster!
That black and white chicken on the right is the rooster.
His name is Perry (Perry Como!).
With him are Laverne (red) and Maxine (black).
Now the henhouse is full of all types of chickens...
a real melting pot.
And I have to find some new chicks to start in the brooder house.
Egg laying has begun to slack off.
ever since the salmonella scare,
our eggs are highly sought-after.
Gotta find me some mo' chickens...
and NO MO' ROOSTERS!!!
