And upon looking at the Jersey Giants a little closer - we think the hatchery made a mistake. One of the Jersey Giants has a definite comb and wattle - and he just towers over the others. The other 5 look identical. We were supposed to have 2 Jersey Giant roosters and 4 hens, but we are thinking we ended up with 1 rooster and 5 hens.
My parents came down on Sunday, and took 2 of our hens home with them. Mom had wanted black and white chickens to start with, and ended up with golden comets and white ones. So we were happy to spread some of the chicken love around. Todd tried to give them a rooster or 2, but they have neighbors to close to them. So far though, none of the roosters are fighting or getting mean - which is a good thing.
Today is a short day of work for me - Jessie has her surgery this afternoon at 3:00 so I'm leaving here early so I can pick her up right before she would eat lunch at school. Todd is staying home and will pick Tyler up from his babysitter's, get him some dinner (probably Subway) and take him to soccer practice.
