One of Chad’s hens, Ethel or Lucy, is actually a rooster. They had suspected that for a couple of weeks. The name has been changed to Fred. He is not a nice rooster. Thank goodness, he doesn’t have spurs yet but he goes after Nicole every chance he gets and he pecked her leg and made it bleed the other day. Chad came out about the time it happened. Nicole told him. He grabbed Fred, put him on Addie’s trampoline, zipped the fence thing closed and said “Now . . you’re in chicken time out!”
Nicole said she was laughing . . chicken time out!
Fred has to go to a new home this weekend . . though knowing Chad, he may end up in a pot of gumbo.
