How neewb am I? One of my hens turned out to be a roo!
But he has a quiet coo instead of a raucous caw, so he can stay,for now. We have been getting one egg a day,but the roo occupies the one nest box,while she ignores the other...
At least she is roosting now,couldn't get her to do that at first.

After a decade of doing this, I rarely have a bad tempered hen and quite often they trail behind me while I'm working, now on our new farm, like little feathery puppies. They eat out of my hand. They pick up their skirts and high tail it to me whenever I call them. It's hilarious.
