It began last May. When we decided Monkey Needed a New Home. Monkey went to a young couple trying to raise chickens. They wanted a rooster to keep watch over their girls and fertilize the eggs for new generations. Oh, the horror of it all.
It so happens I was monitoring Craig's List yesterday and came across an ad for "free Buckeye rooster." I instantly knew it was him, THE Monkey. It had to be him, his evil ways must have been too much for this family and no other chicken could be that evil.
I spoke with the owner, of what is now the infamous Buckeye rooster. In a bid to rid their family of his evil presence they opted to give him away for FREE on Craig's List. "just come and get him" "We can't enter the area without a broom or rake in hand." "You can't turn your back on him for a second!". "He's just too much!"
What kind of evil did we create? Like Dr. Frankenstein, did we create a monster? The poor family just wants him gone, and yesterday is not soon enough.
We can't WAIT to get him back!
