..or at least I will! For the last 18 days or so one of the 2 hens has been sitting on 6 eggs. After the last time she made it up until around this time and bolted so I am hoping we get 6 new chicks sometime in the next week. I have everything ready to go now..now I just need the chicks! I am REALLY sick of that rooster we have now..he is constantly crowing. The other day I had a neighbor say to me, ‘I can hear those 6 roosters crowing all day long!’..yeah…I have not had 6 roosters since March and it is only 1 rooster who LOVES to crow…I fear he learned some bad habits growing up and he never learned to keep his beak shut. I wish he would use his indoor voice when he was outside. Anyway..if ( and I fully expect to ) I get come male chicks it might mean the end for our current rooster..I will not have him teaching bad habits and I am getting tired of getting up to go yell at the rooster in the morning. We will see..perhaps having some younglings will teach the rooster some proper chicken etiquette..he is a savage..the other day I saw him eating his supper without a dinner jacket. the NERVE!
I don’t want to get ahead of myself..a month and a half ago I got to this point with the hen only to be disappointed..first by the lack of chicks..then by the lack of sun.
