Chook Trio August 2013

This trio moved up to the house about 4-6 weeks ago and have caused a stir!  Mr Rooster crows from about 4am onwards but he is so beautiful.  I am hoping these guys will produce some chicks this year and then next year I will have a few “natural” incubators to hatch our meat birds.  These guys are part of my plan to become self sufficient in meat production but they are also helping fertilise the vegie beds, lawns & gardens.

I have also paired up 4 of the other Roosters with hens and one has started sitting – maybe we’ll have spring chickens!
