No More Hen-Pecking

My sister who lives on a farm has had chickens for a year and we have been lucky to get fresh eggs. However, recently they have stopped producing and there has been a lot of hen-pecking going on. So, they decided to introduce a rooster into the mix. My sister reported that the young rooster was ruling the roost and the hens had calmed down considerably. They even started laying more eggs again. We went to the farm for a visit today and got to see the action for ourselves. The chickens were out free ranging and there was the rooster standing tall in the midst of them. As the hens were scratching, feeding, and dust bathing, he walked around and made sure everyone was behaving. At one point, one of the chickens started wandering off. The rooster ran over, fluffed himself up, made a few sounds and motions, and the hen made her way back to the rest of the flock. Then a couple of the hens started a commotion. He ran over to them and broke up the fight. When he saw something of concern in the distance, he made himself big and sounded off a couple of “cock-a-doodle-doos”. My sister said that he would feed himself later on, but now he was on watch taking care of his flock.  Evidently, it only took a couple of days for the young rooster to get acclimated and start doing his job as a rooster. It was amazing to me that all this was done instinctively. To me, the order of things in nature is remarkable.

I Found God today witnessing the amazing order of nature.

  1. Seems to me that the men should rule the roost! Oh, yes. The Catholic Church got something ELSE right, too! Praise the Lord!!
