Polly is Paul

We heard the crowing yesterday - loud and clear.  Not once but three times during the day.
Still not sure how we are going to navigate having a pet meat bird that gets
beat up by the hens.
One day at a time I guess.


  1. Haha! Hello, to Paul!
    Our pet meat bird lives in a tiny house along with one other chicken. Andy built it very quickly a couple years ago as a "rescue house" for chickens to live in at night. Wonder if you could do something like this for Paul- maybe one of the children could work on a shelter?

    1. Hi Mel,
      We actually do have a separate home for him, what I am worried about is the cold...
      Too bad each of our meat birds couldn't meet up:)
      Of course your girl and my girl would never agree to that.
      Wishing you a beautiful day,

  2. oh I meant to tell you I love the new look here with the larger photos! So nice. :)

  3. We had the same experience many years ago with a Buff Orpington, a breed with smaller combs. It turned out Buttercup had to be renamed Butterball:) Once his spurs grew in it became apparent!

  4. That chicken looks huge! Yes, we also had a very flamboyant Beatrice, who my husband swears was a rooster, but I'm not so sure.

  5. Oh, tricky Polly! We have a duck who was thought to be a drake (male), named Alex. Alex turned out to be a girl, but she's still named Alex. Poor Paul. Those hens need a talking to!
