Silence of the Yard

This is the first time in years that I didn't wake up to a roosters crow................I'm not sure how I feel about this :/

The chicken pen is calm (too calm). The hens will have time to regrow their missing feathers and won't look like a flock of mangy mutts. I have two hens that have dirty behinds probably from being oversexed :/ they are getting baths today. Those roosters would really piss me off with their aggressive lovin' so my anger issues are gone while visiting the chickens but the silence, good grief it's quiet. This will take some getting used to. It doesn't feel like a farm without rooster noises. Hopefully the baby roosters find their voice soon and end this silence of the yard...........

  1. And the funny thing is we often don't "hear" something until it's gone . . . or silent. Here's hoping your young roosters will muster up some respectable cock-a-doodle-doos soon!

  2. Bah I bet those hens are pissed at you. One of the dyke hens is now giving them orders and slapping them around with no rooster to keep her in line she is taking all the good scratch for herself. It's silent because they can't make up their minds which way to go or what to do and soon they will stop laying altogether.

  3. You should have just married the hens to the roosters, all of that sex would have stopped after they ate the wedding cake.

  4. We have one rooster, and yes I would miss it if he wasn't out there.

  5. Roosters are a tricky bunch - I have had nice ones and buttheads. Right now I have a nice butthead. I am with you - it's way too weird quiet without a rooster. But I bet your hens will enjoy the break. AND they'll get to beat up the young roosters until the hormones kick in.
