Same accident. Different door

Personal Journey, The Rooster

Same accident. Different door

So as of 8:14 a.m. on Tuesday August 2nd I am possibly missing a cat, or not one may have escaped outside which is really bad for at least one or two of the cats and reasonably bad for the third.

If it’s the bad cat and I don’t mean bad cat I mean if it’s the cat that shouldn’t be allowed outside I could be in big trouble both in general for losing a cat and possibly having that cat not return. That sucks so bad cuz it’s going to stress me until I find the cat.

The problem is this cat is the stealthy one It could be a week before I see it even if it’s indoors.

I hate screwing up but I seem to do it every time. I mean this was an easy day feed the animals almost got killed by a chicken and maybe lost a cat all things considered a bad first day.

….

As of 10:00 a.m. it was pre-connect too much so I decided to spend some actual effort and try and find the cat and indeed it is outside it’s still in the yard and hidden away but the fucking rooster is always nearby which means I have to look at it the whole time and that means I end up falling or possibly worse.

I hate it so much. So I carry a tool now but to be honest I’m not entirely sure what that tool is except something to show between me and the rooster. Since the other chickens aren’t up in the same area it doesn’t seem as eager to defend anything. It just likes to keep an eye on me and cockadoodledoo and let me know it’s watching. It’s got the old rooster eye locked in on me.

Edit: Cat located and he came in on his own. I don’t think I have to tell anyone about losing it.

Rain Rules

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...

Afternoon Feeding conflicts

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...

I was a bit early

I was a bit early

Actually, I'm on schedule but the three remaining birds that are last to go back to the coop in the evening are still out. The rooster and his two first officers. So I sit up at the front seeing if they go inside in the next short while. You don't seem to have noticed...
