We Are Deep In the Heart of Texas

Nomadic seasons of farming adventures with nature thrown in to include; a pinch of family, snippets of friends, counting our blessings, paying IT forward, home school, and the spicy things I decide to rant about.

Alpha: Hoe Hen Inn King

I felt something was wrong this morning and noticed a rooster staying in the coop; when I took Saenz to school. After feeding everyone, I went back to check the coop; sure enough Alpha (Brahma Cochin banty), had been injured. NOTE: He does not realize he weighs two pounds.













So I wrapped him up a towel to give him first aid inside the house. Hydrogen Peroxide, q-tips, and neosporin along with being warm inside the house brought out our curious cats and Turvy is getting ready to sniff his fluffy head.













While he is now resting inside a laundry basket in the darkened laundry room, his subjects have been worried. See the hen with no feathers on her hind parts (Scrapper), she is the resident bully and next to her is Romeo---Alpha's second in command. They are awaiting the return of their King.
