This is our rooster:

Rooster Cogburn and the Mother Cluckers



We used to have another rooster, but we traded it for a hen.  Cogburn has become particularly full of himself since he became the only rooster in town. He’s vocal, he loves fashion, and he always keeps track of his ladies. Since the mink incident these chickens are the only layers we have, but they are prolific. They’ve laid about an egg a day per chicken.

We got some good news this morning when Geoff went out to check the trap he set up to catch the predator mink–the trap was sprung and the mink was caught. His long reign of destruction has come to an end. We’re just hoping his wife doesn’t take over where he left off.

In other news, it was a sunny day on the farm so Geoff, Bailey, Scootie, and I went on a nice walk. We moved the goats, built a garden fence, and played with Maggie and Sergeant Pepper.   As you can see below, Pepper has grown quite a bit. The days are getting longer here on the farm, and daylight savings time is just around the corner. Things are looking up!

    What kind of chickens are they? They remind me of chickens my grandmother had when I was a child.

      They are black australorp chickens. They are gorgeous in person. They are black but their tail feathers have emerald green accents.
