An impostor among us....

This morning when I was out feeding the animals I got quite the surprise.  I was feeding the rabbits, with my back turned to the chicken coop when I first heard it.  The unmistakable sound of "Cockadoodle-Doo!"  I was shocked!  I turned around and all was quiet.  I asked the chickens who had made that noise, and the only answer I received was the quiet reply of 36 eyes staring back at me.  I turned back around, and the crowing started again.  Quickly I spun back around and there was one of our Americauna chickens, Puffy.  Puffy's chest was stuck out and his head was thrown back while he was letting out the perfect "Cockadoodle-Doo".  The question immediately became, what were we going to do with our rooster?  He couldn't stay in the city!  After making a few calls, and practically begging our friends to help us out we found Puffy a home at the Remy's house in the country!

  1. Oh, good thing you found a home so quickly. On our first set of chicks we ended up with 4 or 5 roosters! We kept one and the rest, well, no one would take them.
