Correction needed for previous post. Oops!

Princess Avery
Okay, so a few posts ago I introduced Princess Avery to everyone and well I made huge error in my skills of determining between a rooster and a hen.  When I purchased the 7 chicks, I picked 6 pullets and 1 rooster (rooster had been painted with red dot on his head).  Once they started to get new feathers, they all started to look the same and I thought the rooster was another chick that had similar coloring and I was wrong.

This morning, hubby and I needed to plant a Clumping Bamboo plant that I purchased at the San Marcos Farmers Market last week. I picked the spot between the coop and the neighbors house and as we were digging, I heard some attempts of crowing.  I got so excited, because it was the first crowing I had heard, but when I looked, it was Avery doing the crowing.  So it looks like Princess Avery is Prince Avery.  Worked out good, because Cameron didn't want to eat her eggs anyways, problem solved.

Until next time...



  1. And Cameron is your son?...Or daughter?

  2. Too funny! Today I decided my "Reba" is now "Shotgun Red" or "Red" for short. Turns out she is a he. I have kept track of our rooster (he arrived with a blue dot and is unique-looking enough I can tell him apart). But apparently... our extra/bonus chick was also a roo. Oh well... I love them all and hopefully two roosters for 15 hens will be an ok ratio ;) Aren't their first attempts at crowing funny? Love it!! -Tammy
