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 hard to predict the evening schedule because sometimes they’re already in the coop. Today, the pig was out looking for his food and they came running expect me to have some for them. I have learned they love the tree to a little bit of stale bread. I know I’m not supposed to feed that to seagulls but haven’t read the same about chickens so I toss some bread and they go wild for it.
Of course it takes hands to do that and I’m walking with my defensive stick and a heavy pot of food towards the pig at a faster than normal pace because he’s already out and on his way back to the coop. They get some crumbs and devour them quickly and then they follow me everywhere.
Even the rooster is close behind and I’m aware of him but he’s never come for a swing on the main porch area when I’m almost in the house.
It was shot down quickly and if I hadn’t see it I wouldn’t have known it happened but if it hadn’t gone a different way, he would have had a successful attack on me or my ankles. I really thought we were passed that stage but perhaps this one was slightly different. He really wanted more food.
I don’t feel like appeasing him because of I give them too much then the boss comes home and sees food out I get a lecture for using too much and the other animals eat up his money. I know they won’t starve. Have you seen the size of that rooster?
I’m told people don’t eat boosters because they’re not bread as food like the hens are so they’re genetics are less tender and not as much meat in certain areas but his breasts sure look big and every now and then when he’s pissing me off I think to myself how nice it might be to have some of that on a plate with them potatoes and corn, and maybe some apple pie at the end.
I’m sure he’ll be on this farm longer than I am. I just hope my reason for not being here isn’t because of him. That would suck, because who would blog about it?
