Well for some reason sex seems to be the topic of the month, with the Darren Hughes affair, and the mad rooter and Charlie Sheen all dominating the headlines.
Well now we have a promiscuous chook. We bought a chook with ten little chickie babes on Trademe. But it appears we have purchased a hen hussy. It is obvious there are many fathers involved. Now it appears that she is a good mother, but we are wondering that when we finally purchase a rooster - will he keep her satisfied or will she go walk about in search of more cocks to to satisfy her laying lust.
The good thing is the Department of Rangitumau Hen Housing CEO - The Rock, has built our chooks a Hen Hilton.
Fancy as - it is. Boards, perches, dust, light, air, boxes and an acre to run around in.
We are hoping that our chooks do not end up feeling dependant on our wheaty welfare handouts and accomodation suppliments.
We would prefer that they find the main bulk of food themselves with us giving them a top up.
However we will provide free room and board during egg laying and egg hatching.
And then we might forgive them their hen hussiness.
We dont want socialist chooks who have a sense of entitlement but instead we want hens who are self sufficient.
And if they are really good we will get our chookies a decent cock. A big self important rampant Red rooster Cock called Howdy Doody.
We just hope that for the sake of our chicken breeding programme he doesn't turn out to be gay.
