Last Monday Lucy [my alpha roo—pictured here] was to have left [rehomed]—splitting up the boys. The “new owner” did not pick him up as promised. I did not call to ask why. I have found him a new home and he is to go there Saturday a.m. [now Monday—10/24].
Now, the problem: Lucy [the roo] and Goldie have a special bond. He has made her HIS. He even stood by her as she laid her first egg [I just missed the moment on camera; but, I saw them in the South Tower roost area before all the noise began]. For a couple of weeks they can be seen together. She seldom squawks when he comes calling.
So, do I break this up and leave her for Pete or Junior, the Golden Laced Wyandottes, or do I send one of them packing? I am sentimental. I can be practical. I like the look of the Wyandottes better. I think their manner may be better. Neither of them seem to have a “girlfriend” yet. What is a guy to do? I want your comments.
