Finalizing the (Rooster) Roster

Things were getting a little stressful for the chicken girls out in the shed, so we had to make some hard decisions about roosters.

Here are the guys who made the cut and will be heading up the team for the 19-20 season.

They seem to be adjusting to their leadership roles, and hopefully will help keep the girls safe as they range around the pasture. I’m thankful that now that our rooster population is thinned things are quite a bit calmer in the shed. Hopefully we kept the right guys , but only time will tell.

But today, everything is sunshine and chin scritches out in the pasture.

Aren’t sheeps just the best?
