And then there were three...

We were certainly hoping for more than 50% female, but it was not to be. 

Donald.  We didn't name him that because we really thought it was a "him".  We were always hoping to change it to Donalda.  He was getting pretty loud though and there was no question that it was a "he". 

And Calendula.  He'll be really beautiful when his tail fully grows in. 

Last week we found an acreage to house our roosters.  We brought two out last weekend, and then two more prompted a trip out to Camrose to bring the second two.  Crow and Sukie were already settled into their new/old barn and now the four will have to reaquaint themselves.  I'm not sure how four roosters will behave with no hens around, but they all seemed happy in their new home. 

I can't believe how much they changed and grew in only two months.

Baby Donald
Baby Calendula

I hope they live long and happy lives.  And I'm so grateful that we didn't have to eat them.
