The Chicken Chronicles — Alpha Rooster Joe

Posted on June 3, 2014 in News

We love our roosters!  Joe is the alpha bird and he struts around the farm watching over his hens.  He finds them food, he helps them to select a nest and most importantly, he risks his life to protect them.  Joe has chased away mongoose and feral cats and has been seen flying up into the trees to keep hawks away from his hens.  No rooster could ever be more devoted to his ladies.  When the chickens go into the roost at night Joe will not goJoe with them until every hen is safely inside.  We have no idea how he has learned to count but he never leaves anyone outside at night.
