Coop and run finished....Acquired 4 cockerels!
« on: March 16, 2012, 20:28 »
On Monday I finally got my run,nest boxes and perches finished :D.
I'd just put the finishing touches to the door in the run when my friend came in 'I'll box up those 2 cockerels for you in the morning,you can fatten them up to eat' he said.
I told him I didn't have any food yet but he said 'I'll bring some'.
Ok.....All was well ::)

The next morning when I went up to the allotment and looked in the run,4 cockerels were looking back :blink: 3 from him and 1 from another friend who obviously thought it was better off with me than him.  :blink:
My plan was to have 6 hens maximum and a couple of meat birds every now and again.
I've got 4 birds already and guess what ?........................Not 1 single egg!

 :wacko:
It's better to burn out than to fade away !!     ;)

Oh dear  :lol:

I'd have a word as you don't want more and more cockerels appearing, but I guess it is 4 chicken dinners at the very least.  They should be fine as a batchelor group, but it does rather knacker your plans to introduce hens, as they will fight like crazy if there are ladies around  ::)

That's the best way to think of it Judd, careful you don't get too attached to them.   ;)
