Saying Goodbye to Brownie
Well, since Brownie has decided to crow and crow and crow at all hours of the night, it’s time for him to move back to my mom’s farm in Omak. There he can crow his little heart out and not worry about waking up our neighbors. Nobody has complained or called the police. We just want to respect our neighbors and not give anyone an excuse to “ban” chickens or roosters in our town.
This was a very hard decision. We love this little guy and will miss him dearly. At least we can visit him at my mom’s.
We also felt we needed to get rid of one of our roosters since we currently have two hens and two roosters. This is hard on the hens. We really should have a better rooster to hen ratio. Since Brownie is crowing loudly and a lot, he helped us decide. Buttercup stays.
Tomorrow morning we’re putting Brownie in a pet carrier and driving him the four hours to my mom’s. There he’ll start his new life. My mom has promised that Brownie will get his own pen and two hens of his own – sounds like a good deal.
I bet he’s going to miss his buddy Buttercup – they grew up together and have been inseparable. Sad.
