24. Time to Say Goodbye...

It was lovely getting to know Rooey, but his aggression towards new people and constant crowing -just good rooster behavior for sure -got the better of us.

I found a kindly gentleman from Orange County who has 60 acres (lucky him!). Rooey is now boss to 26 hens and I am sure he is thrilled.

Goodbye Rooey!!!!

On a more thrilling tangent, we have been getting TONS of eggs lately (well, tons for us that is...). Yesterday was an all time high with 6 collected!! The Araucanas are finally laying, so we can proudly say we've raised day-old chicks up to 23 week old laying hens... And yes, it did take that darn long.

Great picture of Rooey. Any updates on how he's doing? Any picts of him in his new digs?
