Something to Crow about-


 Mr. Burns a.k.a.- George (on first name basis)

This is him shortly after we got him here…around October 20th or so. His first escape to OUTSIDE the cage. Before we started letting them range during the day time. Pretty small. What's wrong with this picture?

Shortly before Christmas- Still not crowing. Still pretty small and not crowing yet.  He was starting to do his warm ups…but his voice was cracking. Chicken Closeups  last week Nov 2011 001

George started really crowing on New Years Day…very early in the morning. He woke me up! It was funny!

~~~Cue dream sequence music-- cause I was dreaming about my brother, and my sons and nephew…all coming really close to my face and shouting…

HhAaaapY NEEEEw YEeeeAR!

Over and Over.

and OVER and OVER…

When I finally woke up—it was George, Crowing his head off!

I told my whole family this dream I’d had—when they were at our annual family gathering that afternoon. 100_2104







We all still laughing about it…especially when we hear George crowing. As if to say…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I think that now every time I hear a rooster crow, I'll hear "Happy New Year!" I want to have chickens, and I'd love to have a rooster, because I love the crowing... But not sure the neighbors do...

Don't you just love when the roosters begin to crow. They do crack just like a teenage boy.

Hope you are doing well.

It's so funny to listen to them learning to crow!

I grew up on a farm and there were always roosters crowing. Now I'll think of you every time I see or hear a rooster.
