Well turns out that it is true about birds.  The prettiest are the boys.  I just  knew it when I noticed blue shinny feathers growing on one of the chickens that it was not a HEN.  Finally after he crowed, Andy believed me.  And found that we actually have two roosters and they crowed.  Now our neighbors loved it, well not all the neighbors, but no one complained.  
Andy “took care of the roosters”  and that is all.  It was awful for everyone, but mostly for the Captian.  You know, first kills and all. 😦  
Bye bye you crazy roosters, chasing you around the property will be memorable!
