Chickens in the Basement

I love to write and I love to laugh. When I write, I get to the point quick. My stories would fit on the back of a postcard. They usually make me chuckle. And you know what they say, "It's all about me!"

Happy Trails!

Neighbor Mary left a message for me over the weekend. She had found a home for Hazel the Rooster! He has gone to live with 6 hens. I'm not sure what happened to the previous rooster, but the hens were in the market for a new dude and didn't care that he had a feminine name.



The driver who would be taking Hazel to his new harem had a photo of his predecessor on his cell phone. I would say this is a good sign for Hazel.


No longer do we need to worry that Hazel will cross the road!


Thanks a bunch Mary! Tony majorly appreciates the silence at 4:00 am!

It was a strategy I had back when he first hatched. I thought I would try naming all the chicks with girl's names and they would grow up to be girls. One out of two aren't such great results!

Fare Thee Well Hazel, may all your 'hens' be friendly! Sounds like a perfect place for him.

But, do you have ANOTHER rooster besides Hazel???? I was under the impression, from my farming relatives, that hens needed a rooster in the barnyard somewhere if they were going to lay eggs.

Poor Hazel - - - shipped away because of his propensity to sing too early in the morning, and he had SUCH a lovely tenor voice too.

Hehehehehehehehe

Hazel packing his suit cases and moving to a harem... I can see it now!

YEAH Hazel!

Yes, we still have Skippy, the rooster who thinks I'm his mom. He's a late sleeper. However, the girls will still lay eggs without a rooster, they just won't be fertile eggs.

What a beautiful bird- I love his furry feet. But I'm not a morning person so away he would have to go!

You don't have to publish this, but Hazel is gonna be one happy cock!

Well, Hazel should be crowing with delight now! Way to pimp him out! LOL!

If you name a chick, pet that chick, and fall in love with that chick it will be a rooster that you cannot keep 100% of the time. I know this for a fact. Great that you found him a perfect home.

Dang, Christine stole my punchline!

Hooray for Hazel, now that he'll be all stud and no "why did the rooster cross the road". We don't want flattened roosters.

May your testosterone thrive Hazel!

Is Hazel a he? Bet he's one happy camper being with all those girlies.

About the daffodillies on my post, yes they do make me happy.. Actually spring flowers, critters and being outdoors makes me happy.

Hope your day was happy!
Toodles and God Bless,
Julie

I'm so happy for Hazel. I wonder what the ratio of roosters with girls' names are to those with boy names. Anyway, I love a happy ending.
