Meet Hei Hei the Rooster!
Hei Hei is our 13 week old Buff Orpington Rooster. He was re-homed with us from a kind family that got a straight run of chicks.
A straight run of chicks just means that the chicks had not been sexed, so you get what you get and you don’t get upset!
Luckily Hei Hei was the last of the roosters to be re-homed and he was welcomed to My Not So Pioneer Life with open arms.
Buff Orpington Roosters are a generally agreeable bird and are known for their good personalities. Since we have young children we wanted to make sure we had a rooster that can grow up with us and hopefully keep a kind disposition.
Our youngest was in charge of naming our new friend. We’re on quite the Moana kick right now and Hei Hei is the name of the rooster in that movie.
He is a very protective guy and likes to keep our three other hens close by.
Hei Hei isn’t crowing just yet but we’re sure he’ll find his voice soon!
