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.
