Today we're implementing our Separation Plan.  

Last year we didn't need to implement our Separation Plan, I think because the Dinner Chickens were hatched very late in the season;  by the time the hormones kicked in it was later in the year, the days were shorter, the weather not great.  We didn't have any trouble between cockerels, and the boys didn't seem to be pestering the girls.     Our last few cockerels, who were actually meant to be Christmas Dinner,  weren't dealt with until later in January because of the bad weather.

This year, there hasn't been too much trouble between the Boys, apart from the expected jostling for position.   We noticed that one of the Boys (one of the Roo look-e-likeys) was starting to pester the Girls last week, but as we have lots of Girls it wasn't too much of a problem.  However, it did make us work out our Separation Plan, and I'm glad we are now able to just go and do it.

So that's what we'll be doing this morning.  

Back later.
