So Long Monkey

We said goodbye this weekend to one of our roosters, Monkey.  He was from our first batch of chicks a year ago and got his name because he was always noisy;  like a howler monkey.  It was sad to see him go, but he has 5 new girlfriends all to himself, and my 9 hens will have a chance to heal up, since two roosters was just too many.

The new girls weren't taking any of his "crap" either.  They put him in line right away, and of course he set off to make himself seem important by finding them bugs.  I was glad to see him fit right in.  It's still sad.  So long Monkey.


  1. I wont take him long to become the boss and maybe those new girls will temper his ways. Ha!

  2. He'll be happy to have a new roost. Around here, extra roosters end up in the crockpot so he's a lucky boy!

  3. Sista,

    Chicken are resilient if anything, at least mine are. I'm sure he'll be fine. He has a nice home, and yard that is very clean. I always worry about that.


    He is a very lucky boy! I'd rather see them have a purpose than end up in the pot, and he's really beautiful so having his genetic traits passed along is good too.

    thanks for following along..


We love to hear from you! Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
