Day 93

The cockerel we said good-bye to...

So the 'girls' turned out to be '3 girls and a boy' but Erik at 24 Rivers Farm was nice enough to exchange the cockerel for a pullet. Being new to the group, she got harassed quite a bit by the existing clique and after 3 weeks still tends to eat apart from the others. She did learn very quickly the routine of heading toward the coop with the first strains of 'Good Night Ladies'. They are all growing strong and healthy but -damn- how much longer before those eggs start coming? The oldest are now just over 4 months old. Then again, patience is not one of my more reliable virtues...
