King Of the Roost

This is Big D.

Is there any wonder why he is the king of the roost at our little hobby farm?





By the way, we are getting from eight to twelve eggs everyday. 

How great is that!!

Beautiful chickens! We used to have some back in the day. Our roosters name was Scratch!

I'm downright jealous! I would love to have the space for a mini farm and have my own eggs. Fortunately, I have a friend who does so I buy from her.

The best we can do here are our square foot gardens. Sigh.

Funny story: when we were little we had chickens and fresh eggs every day...except Clara. My Parents had to buy some eggs at the store for her because she was convinced that the store eggs were machine made! LOL! I think and hope! she knows the true by now....

Sweet! My Dad has a few chickens and one rooster. He is a bit of a meanie...I think I'm scared of him and he knows it...ha!

Oh...I just love this photo! I have 8 lovely girls, but no rooster. I love how he towers over all the hens!

Hi Amy! Big D is HUGE...I think he's quite a bit bigger than our Romeo who I think is the same breed by the looks of it. YES we do have a bare backed chicken...only one but the poor girl not only has a bare back but the feathers around her head are gone too. We took Romeo's spurs off as he had put a HUGE gash down her side but she's healed finally. We'll have to take his spurs off once a year at least...you might want to try that. We saw it done on Youtube and it was actually very easy..wish we would have done that sooner! You have a lovely Blog...I'll be back again! Take care...Maura :)
