Our rooster Big Red seems to be well not quite himself lately.
Most of our chickens are going through their annual moult so I am wonder if that has something to do with it. When it comes to moulting some chickens loose almost all their feathers at once and some loose them gradually. Big read looses his gradually and the only reason you know he is moulting is that he looses his big fancy tail feathers (I am sure there is a name for these).
Anyway back to Big Red.
So for the last few days he has spent a lot of time "sleeping" well I think that is what he is doing. You can walk right up to him and he doesn't even wake up.
Sometimes he is sitting down.
In addition to his sleepiness he is also not calling his girls like he normally does.
Maybe he is just taking some time for himself away from all the squawking women in his life?
I will keep an eye on him and see how he goes, but let me know if you have any thoughts on the matter.
