Rotten chickens

Things are getting out of hand. Peeking in our family room and crowing on the front porch are one thing. Hanging out all day on our verandah, pooping on our shoes, eating the last of the petunias and sitting on the porch swing are a completely different matter.

Yes, the seven Australorp cockerels have decided the covered verandah gives them the perfect vantage point for basking in the sun and viewing their kingdom. But really - the porch swing? That's our porch swing.

The Boop Boop stick has taken on a new function. Now it's the "Get the #$%@!! off my verandah, you rotten chickens!" stick.

Oh, boy, do I know about that! At least you still have grass. LOL Unconfined chickens - while picturesque, charming, and oh, so interesting to watch - are just destruction machines on chicken feet.

I feel quite strongly that poop should stay on the outside of shoes.

Seven cockerels? How do you keep them from killing each other?

They are sure handsome, tho'.

Other than their incursions onto our verandah, these have been remarkably well behaved cockerels, mostly because Kim manages them so well and they have lots of space to roam. (Although they almost always stick together - go figure...) But their days are numbered. They're off to the slaughterhouse on Tuesday.
