Okay, I will confess to a certain smugness while reading other folks' experience with mean roosters. I just knew that my sweet, loving little boys would never attack me! I am their mommy... I raised them, fed them, let them sit on my shoulder and eat my diamond earrings! Well, only one pair of earrings. And I knew that one day I would have to make a choice. Three roosters for 14 hens was only going to cause problems and harassed hens. But, at 3 and a half months old, I thought I had some time. Besides, the rooster to be culled was not the one that has now decided my foot is a threat. He must have been foreseeing the future, because my foot was not a threat to him until he made it one. In other words, he started it. So now I have a 14 week old RIR roo that is attacking my feet when I come in the pen...and drawing blood! I am just glad these guys don't have spurs! I know the answer. Mr Bojangles will be joining us for dinner real soon. I just thought it couldn't happen to me! I swear to never feel smug about anyone's chicken experience ever again!
