Peep! Peep! Peep!

Cluck! Cluck! Cluck!

©, the ear-splitting foodie farm blog where that whole thing about roosters only crowing at the break of day? So not true. And right now we have two. After a while you hardly notice it, though. No, really. Actually, the crowing almost always cracks me up—except when I'm trying to sleep. Then it just wakes me up. Over and over and over. Sometimes I'll turn a box fan in the bedroom on high and face it toward the wall to block out the noise—in the middle of winter. It works, but it drives Joe nuts.


  1. that is just so perfect!!!! I lost your site for awhile and am so glad to locate it again...Your life is so special to me...Thank you...Deb

  2. One stipulation on getting chickens - hubby said NO roosters. So we have quiet murmuring hens -the cluckinators. Very hot here today so I'm headed out to change their water and maybe spray the ground in their run to help cool - they are in good shade.
    Roosters DO have an attitude don't they?

  3. LOVE this one....I miss my chickens. Must get some more when life settles down a little! Your pics made me smile today....

  4. Isn't it great when roosters learn to crow and it is just like a teenage boys voice that cracks and breaks! It was always great when we had chickens (broilers) when they would learn to crow because you would wake up laughing.

  5. I'm not a fan of any sort chicken since I was chased home as a child by a rooster pecking at me but...I have to say that is one really fine looking fowl. Cool coloring...

  6. His midnight crowing may be maddening, but man, that is one good looking rooster!

  7. He's cute and probably a very reliable waker-upper every morning.

  8. I love the look on his face!

  9. Frickin' roosters should come with muzzles. At least you don't have any neighbors that wake up to the melodious crowing at three in the morning when it's still dark. Like we do. Sorry, neighbors!

    You have TWO roosters right now? Not good. Multiple roosters is bad news, what with their penchant for staging their very own unsanctioned cock fights. I assume one will be disposed of somehow soon?

  10. I just realized that I wrote a comment today on your Nov. 11, 2008 post! I asked an egg question. If you have time, could you look at it and help me out. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks.

  11. wow, he is such a gorgeous guy. I love how he is looking at you!

  12. With your permission, I am stealing that first picture for a screen saver. BEST picture ever!


December 2015 update: Hi! For some reason I can't figure out, Blogger hasn't been letting me leave comments on my own blog (!) for the last several months, so I've been unable to respond to your comments and questions. My apologies for any inconvenience! You're always welcome to email me: farmgirlfare AT gmail DOT com.

Hi! Thanks for visiting Farmgirl Fare and taking the time to write. While I'm not always able to reply to every comment, I receive and enjoy reading them all.
