Chicken News From the Green Acres Cottage

I'm new to the backyard chicken thing.  I've only had them for 3 months now. I can't believe how quick they grow and change and how dumb I really am about chickens.   I thought I would share a picture with you of Buttercup my Rhode Island Red.   I took this picture 3 months ago of her.    Look how cute she was only 3 months ago.  I was so excited to look forward to large brown eggs......
This is a picture of Buttercup I took today, only 3 months later.

Yep, she's a ROOSTER!   And the really sad part of it all, up to 2 days ago, I actually still thought she was a hen!  I guess I better read one of those Chickens for Dummies Books.  Yeah, go ahead and laugh at me, everyone else is!
