I’m FREAKING OUT!
For the last couple days I’ve watched these little red spots (wattles) develop under Licorice’s beak. This morning they look huge! I’m freaking out. Is Licorice a ROOSTER? Can this even be possible?
Why am I freaking out? If she turns out to be a he:
- I’ll have raised three chicks (two last year/one this year). All three would be roosters!
- We may need to move so we can keep all the chickens. I live IN TOWN! I have neighbors. They tolerate ONE rooster!
- I may have to send Buttercup back to the farm (my mom’s) since I obviously favor Licorice. OR
- I may build another coop (put in front yard) and get Licorice a lady friend.
