Well, once we knew for sure that Betty was a rooster, it was only a matter of time until we had to get rid of him. That time came this week when we received a letter of notice from the city. They had received a complaint regarding our rooster crowing and gave us almost a week to remedy the problem. Fortunately I had a friend who had a good home for him just outside of town where he’ll be able to stretch his wings and chase all the hens he wants to.
It was disappointing to have to send him off to another home, but we were very glad he’ll be able to keep up with a new group of girls.
I think I’ll miss the crowing, but I’m not sure yet. Sometimes I enjoyed him and sometimes he was annoying.
He was such a pretty rooster and I’m sad that one of my Americanas had to leave, but we really couldn’t keep him in town.
I’ll be curious to see how the coop dynamic changes with Betty gone. We’ll find out!
