Bella becomes Bello, the rooster, not hen

Our beautiful girl Bella, has become our beautiful boy Bello (?)

 Yes, this is our beautiful Bella at 24 weeks! Bella has finally revealed her true identity with a morning crow, and some particularly testosterone aggro behaviour. I began to suspect Bella may be a rooster a week or two ago when Bella began to attack my hand when I put down food for her (him). I also witnessed a vicious attack on a piece of toilet paper. Bella ripped the offending tissue into a number of different pieces and stomped all over them, with lightning speed. One assumes a ‘chicken expert’ would have the basics of sexing a chicken under wraps, hence my reticence to go public with this piece of information. I stayed in denial. 

However, there really is no hiding this fact any longer, and so with great pride I reveal Bello our beautiful 6 kg rooster to the world via blog.

Bello’s impressive weight comes with a massive price. Besides the organ and heart problems that broilers face long-term, and the pain of accelerated unnatural growth, Bello is also experiencing foot issues….see Bello’s feet below

  1. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m
    going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
