This post is a little late. We ended up with a couple of roosters, two out of our three Anericaunas and my favorite “hen.” Anyway, we couldn’t keep them so we started exploring our options and decided to take them to the Arcadia Small Animal Auction (suggested by Come See Come Sav.) There is guy, one guy, that they refer everyone to that needs to get rid of a rooster or roosters; however, he takes them all to the auction. So, we decided to take a trip to Arcadia for our Friday night date night. The auction is every Friday at 7pm, drop off starts early in the morning.
It was an experience… And I couldn’t go through with it. We ended up pulling our roosters out and leaving. The entire time we were there I was trying to get on the “Florida Chicken Swap” Facebook page to find someone that would take our roosters and give them a good home… I finally did at the last minute. The boy that started the group page responded and we ended up meeting up that evening. The next morning he sent Beau pics of the roosters out in their yard with a bunch of chicks. I was so relieved and everyone was happy!
(Pictures will follow, new phone.)
The website will be up and running in the next day or so http://www.beau-coop.org A lot is happening at Beau•coop so be sure to come back and take a peep.
All of a sudden one of the chickens was running around crazy in the yard. We couldn’t figure out what she was doing, and then…
We saw the lizard, and down it went!
Prior to getting Bleau, I had a plan to take Beau out to Myakka City and pick out a bunny that would be old enough on Beau’s birthday to come back to Beaucoop. Well, we stuck to this plan and Spot is now at Beaucoop.
We took Bleu with us to confirm his sex. This was a good thing because she ended up being a he, and now we have two males… Which we had to watch closely. Spot was born on April 25 and only 5 weeks on Beaus’s birthday, so much younger and smaller than Bleu.
We learned how to tell a rabbit’s sex, how to check their teeth and how to clip their nails. This was a great experience! We had never seen Bleau so calm.
We kept Bleau and Spot in the house the first couple of nights and in the rabbit house during the day. I monitored them closely. Bleau is the happiest we’ve ever seen him. He literally has a new kick in his step…
Bleu and Spot are like two peas in a pod 💕
