rooster replacement

The other morning we woke up to the sounds of an unmistakable attempt at crowing. Apparently our chickens were not all hens as we had thought! The culprit turned out to be Fifi, the biggest black and white. Everyone knew he was a rooster but me. I wanted to see him crow so I knew I was taking the right chicken back, although it took me several days to catch him at it!

Yesterday I returned him to the feed store and came home with our rooster replacement, Betty. 

The other two aren't taking too kindly too her so I had separate them. Hopefully she'll grow quickly and be able to fend for herself soon. On another note, I think Lulu will start laying eggs in the next few weeks!
