Happy Saturday everyone!
We got a bit of a relief from the snow today ... but another system is just about to pound us. Here's what the last week or so looked like from the poultry's eye view.
See the rooster in the front? That's not who you think it is....introducing Little Pansy, Son Of Big Pansy. LP has actually come into a flock-leadership role with the 'power vacuum' now that Fred The Rooster is gone. Actually I'm pretty disappointed with Big Pansy FredKiller.... he just hasn't stepped up. So the ladies seem to follow Little Pansy and I'm guessing he will be the flock sire. We actually like his conformation (body shape) a little better - he is more evenly proportioned and a bit smaller. We like his small comb and easy going personality. We think he'll throw lovely chicks. However, I'm worried that he isn't as protective of the flock as Fred was.. but I think he'll learn. He has huge shoes to fill.
