Life at Boulderwood:
Cruelty in the Chicken Coop

Sometimes the news with animals isn't always good. This week we witnessed cruelty in the chicken coop. What I've observed with chickens is as the ladies age, the roosters are very mean to them. So much for respecting your elders. One of the older girls was molting and growing back her winter feathers and the other chickens picked on her. She was outcast and scared. She is now in chicken heaven, in peace - at least that's how I see it.
