OHMYGOSH, you guys. My roosters are terrorizing the hens. I was in denial before that it was going to happen, but we went over to the chickens yesterday and Carrot Top had Miss America pinned down and was on top of her, having his way with her. Matrix came FLYING over the trampoline and got him off of her.
And look at her back. The two of them are already ripping all her feathers out of her back.
And Sarah was all, "Mommy?! What is he doing???!"
And I'm like, "OHMYGOSH. GET OFF OF HER!"
They're tearing out all the feathers on my Barred Rock too.
And this poor girl is bald now.
Remember Bareback? She never got her feathers back at all. She's still bald.
Bob loves the roosters. But inclined to say it's time for them to die immediately. I am not keen on feeding something that isn't producing eggs anyway, and it's not like we live somewhere where we need a rooster to chase off predators.
Plus, do you think the hens LIKE that? I know they are just chickens, but imagine you are just walking around in your house and several times a day, men throw you on the ground, pull your hair out, and rape you. Would that be enjoyable?
And now I'm going to have ugly featherless chickens.
Does anyone know how to knit? I'm going to need some chicken sweaters this winter.
Remember the women that sold chicken diapers? They also sell chicken saddles.
They go over the hens back and keep the roosters from ripping the feathers out.
I wonder if they make chastity belts? That's what I NEED.
