I kinda want to but I've already got so many blogs, most of which I only rarely post to...
I gots it.
What if I posted more flock stuff on here, would that do? Or would that be too invasive..? Awe, I dunno anymore. Chickens are a big part of my life but they're not all my life, you know?
Maybe I should put a poll up on the issue.
Speaking of polls, go vote on the current one "just because"! ;-)
True story: last night I went to check on Casper, our 4-month old gentle giant roo that I transferred to the big girls' flock as Sunshine went to live in a castle with many lovely ladies-in-waiting (I have too many roosters and it's driving the neighbors crazy, I have to re-home a few... sigh).
Well. Hormones set his brain on fire overnight - suddenly Casper isn't my sweet, friendly, cuddly boy anymore, oh no - he attacked me twice, drawing blood on my leg both times!!
Yeah, this boy here:
I've never had any roo act of the sort, it's horrible! I have a "zero tolerance" policy here on aggressive animals and fuck rehab, I have too many roosters as it is and hate feeling fearful and untrusting towards one of them.
Casper's going to be huge when he's mature, his dad is one big mean mofo (I just found that out a few days ago) so it's not boding well for this fella. He will be re-homed as soon as I can find a proper place for him - some people have the experience to deal with dominant beasts and actually want aggressive roos as they make awesome flock guardians. It's just not for me.
Anyways. That's the latest drahma, if you don't count the massive rains and flooding we got overnight. And will get all week. Yep. Rain until Friday, woohoo.
So much to do, so little mojo. There's a crack in the car's windshield that needs to be fixed asap. Flower beds need weeding. Floors need cleaning, baskets of dirty clothes need laundering. Groceries need to be fetched. The deck needs staining, which isn't going to happen unless things dry up. Time for napping?
