Puff Daddy was pardoned!

Today was the day for butchering around here on the Urban Farm/Remy Homestead, and I bet you can't guess who was pardoned?!  Yes, that is right....  Puff Daddy the rooster is still alive, well, and humping all of his girls!  I called the Reluctant Farmer today to ask her if they were taking Puffy with them to the butcher and was immediately told that Puffy could not be caught.  When I encouraged her to try harder she explained they didn't have room for Puff in the cages and she liked him so she was not going to help catch him and drive him to meet his demise.  He evidently was racing around the coop and yard not allowing anyone to touch him and humping all of the ladies as he was doing it.  Silly chicken!  

So, for all of you Puffy Daddy fans out there please know that Puffy was granted a "stay" by the warden and he will remain in jail being granted conjugal visits, until all of the evidence has been reviewed.  (He claims he has no idea what we humans are upset about, and he has not chased anyone and beat them up for several days.)  Puffy will also have access to the free food and water that the warden drops off twice daily.  I have a feeling that Puffy can not continue his streak of good behavior for too long, and my prediction is he will be in with our dumplings at Thanksgiving.  I also predict I am going to have to butcher him myself because we are not going to drive 30-40 minutes to butcher one chicken.  Good thing I took that meat bird workshop.  It looks like I am going to utilize my skills!  

Puff Daddy wants to tell you all good morning and he is happy he made the cut!

  3. Emily,
    I found your site through Tilly's Nest Blog Hop and I'm so glad to hear that Puff Daddy has been offered a temporary stay of execution :) I can't have chickens in my subdivision but I love living vicariously through others so thanks for sharing your experiences.
