Afternoon Feeding conflicts

I placed the majority portion of food in the elevated area near the door. Because, it had rained earlier, I had to reach to grab the main dish, flip it over and let the water out as everyone came running, eager for their dinner portions.

 

I set my defence stick down and fed them. As I turned around, forgetting the stick the rooster lunged. It was unexpected and without reason. Except to let me know I can’t let my guard down. This time the dogs were with me and one particularlyq keen to protect and impress me had his throat around the rooster within seconds.

 

Luckily, he responded to my loud and form NO and the incident passed. They continued with their meal as I sat to write this blog.

 

If you don’t have a weapon, have a dog

 

The rooster didn’t make contact but it was close. I am happy the ground was flat and stable in this area so being startled and attacked there didn’t end with a fall.

He still needs to feel protective of his hens in front of them. He stands tall, flapping his giant wings as he cried out for another 15 minutes or so.

Rain Rules

The chickens don't want to get wet so when it starts to rain instead of going back to the coop they come up to the house and hang out on the porch under a roof. Likewise, I'm not a big fan of getting wet, so today I made up rain rules which indicate it's okay to feed...

Do Rooster carry rabies?

Do Rooster carry rabies?

I know they don't. Probably. It was a brief fantasy about finding a reason to get rid of the rooster and win the war once and forever. Another attack from the front line happened this morning. I also witnessed the rooster being a bit of a bastard. Not doing his...

And so it continues..

And so it continues..

I was almost at the steps to the house when I turned my back and the rooster. It's usually a safe spot especially since the food is a long way away. I think you may be mad because I didn't bring out a fifth portion for him which for a while I was doing,   It's so...
