We have had a couple of surprises this week in the hen house.
The first surprise was that Tubby has decided that the nest box should become his domain. I don’t know how that rooster fits through that hole. His shoulders are wider than the opening. When you lift the lid, all you see is white feathers! Although, Cassidy will kick him out when it is time to lay eggs (which leads to another surprise.)
So eggciting (pun intended)! Cassidy has finally started to lay eggs. Here is the bounty she has given me so far this week. (Still no eggs from Sundance.)
The biggest surprise we have had is that, apparently, Butch is really a rooster! Tubby was suppose to be the only rooster, but Butch had other plans. Now we get serenaded by the crow of Butch. He isn’t as shy, so it was easy to record him. Notice that he is doing an imitation of Karate Kid while crowing.
Well, hopefully, this is all the surprises we will be getting in the coop. (Unless, of course, Sundance starts crowing!
