My cock situation

So we inherited a bunch of classroom birds and they are looking pretty cocky. Is too much cock a first world problem?

Cocks!

This is culture shock for Griftopia, which has been Estrogen dominated for years. now Griff has all his cocks in a row to reclaim control of the kingdom. Or not.

Looks like all Plymouth Rocks. Did the teacher pull a fast one and give you all the cockerels? Very nice birds, but in the end ... You Only Need/There Can Only Be One.

What will you do with the rest?

if memory serves my rooster problem consists of one Plymouth Rock, two Dominique who were bred here, a Rhode Island Red, that fancy dude who is gentle as a lamb, and two mostly white dudes who may be leghorn crosses. I'd say the farmer who gave them to her sexed them. I get the last laugh though there is a Lakenvelder hen.

I didn't actually need more birds since I have 4 Dominique laying and 6 young Plymouth Rock starting. The old Dominique rooster committed fratricide over the summer so the position of #2 rooster is open. I might keep 3 if they get along.

I can think of two roosterless flocks nearby and the one dude would make a pet. Soup is the likely outcome for the remaining.

Plymouth Rock!!!! I could not remember the name of the breed.

Anywho...I was driving through the local city park when I saw something move in the corner of the windshield. Right there on the side of the road, right behind the creekside swing, was this magnificent bastard of a rooster.

He had a stark, white hen w/him. It had stormed the night before, and I figger they crossed the creek somehow from the hobby farm on the other side.

Haven't seen 'em since.

When my dad visited from Texas we built a chicken coop out of old shipping pallets. It can probably house about a dozen egg layers. I still need to finish the roosts and nests, so far got the roof finished before rainy season.

We want to get goats next. Like, goats instead of a lawn mower.

Word to the wise, goats prefer browsing trees and bushes to eating grass. A couple sheep would mow the the lawn though.

Thank you, wise man. Sheep might be less trouble and more cute.

I've known goats before.
