Two Crowing Hens and a Summer Garden Update


Faithful HomesteaderIt has been a bit of a crazy summer. Overall we have had a way too dry summer and both my hens are crowing. Most of the garden died early on because of the lack of rain.

Due to illness we have been down to only two chickens. My husband thinks they are bored and in need of more chickens to balance things out again.

My original hen Buster started crowing years ago and she goes through stages of crowing and then she will go for a bit without doing it. It seems as if she is crowing for a longer period of time this year. We are ready for her to stop.

We live in a regular neighborhood and we always worry about the noise of our little Buster. We actually will bring her inside so she is less likely to annoy the neighbors.

Thankfully, she has become easy to catch over the years. One day I heard some other crowing, but thought that it was maybe the television.

But then I soon figured out that it wasn't the television, but instead it was my other hen Nailie. I can't believe that I now have two crowing hens.
