Isn't this a neat old vintage post card? I thought if would be perfect for today's Farmgirl Friday!
I thought I'd give you a little update on the Cottage Hen's and the new chicks... and maybe a dude too???
Yep, I think we have a rooster in our new batch of chickens. My husband and I swear we could hear him trying to crow the last two mornings! The new girls are about 11 weeks old and the chicken we suspect to be our Rudy the Rooster is a bit larger, more assertive and trying to crow in the morning...
If it walks like a rooster and talks like a rooster, it's probably a rooster. Not sure what we'll do with him. He's already quite handsome... He's second to the end with a head of black feathers and gold and black on his chest. I think he and the other girls, Penelope and Lucille are wondering why Stevie is causing such a ruckus on the roosting bar! She's the one with her tail feathers pointed the opposite way in the middle! I kind of like his little sound, but hubs says it won't be so little in a few weeks and who knows how assertive he'll become with the ladies once he's a full blown Rooster! Right now there is harmony in the hen house! That's the latest from the Little Red Hen House. I'll keep you posted.
Melissa of Tilly's Nest was here ( in person ) last week to do a Tour De Coop and entered a blog post about her visit in last weeks Farmgirl Friday blog hop! She's making time to meet fellow backyard chicken keeper's and sharing their set ups on her blog. Isn't that a great idea? It was so much fun to meet her and her darling daughter in person. Wouldn't it be fun to do an annual linky party where everyone share's their backyard
chicken's and coops?
Now, it's your turn to link up for your weekly dose of farmgirl soul food!
Here are the rules for the Farmgirl Friday blog hop:
1.) Write a post about your farmgirl lifestyle and brag a little about your farmgirl talents while your at it! Share what being a farmgirl means to you. Include lots of photos of your farm, crafts, animals, quilts, home decor projects and thrifty make overs, your backyard garden, hen house, studio or workshop. You get the idea!
2). Leave a permalink in the Mr. Linky space to your Farmgirl Friday post.
