Rooster Talk

That Rooster can say that again..though don`t get me wrong I am not looking forward to the freezing cold winter either.In Tennessee i think that we quit having Fall and Spring. We just have Hot and Cold.

Red Rooster

My son raising Chickens was a shock to me. I burst out laughing.I think he got tired of buying cold storage eggs.My mom raised chickens and i grew up around them and milking cows and pigs and such but i never raised anything but i did put out  a really small garden..Well here is one of the roosters that he raised plus he raised a lot of hens.The rooster is his alarm clock now.He did a really good job ,so i am proud of him.
