He is the smallest of the triplets at 54lbs.
Part of the field looks like this, which is not good but it is still hanging in and with a bit more rain it my produce some hay and or grazing.
We put them in early Sunday morning so they would be use to the run before night time, at 8pm we went to catch them and fasten them in the chicken house for the night and we found our old cockerel with a very bloody face.
We think he has been defending his girls and babies, part of his comb on his head is missing and his eye is partly closed. We gave him a close inspection and while he looks quite battered all of his injuries look to be superficial and best of all know one else was hurt so he did a good job. Dave is now patroling the chicken run at dusk and dawn to see if he can find the critter that is harming our chucks.
