    One day I was going down to the chicken coop and I had grain in my hand. I tossed it out to the chickens. Then I looked at Wooster, our white silky rooster. He is very clumsy. When he turned his back on me for one second, I threw the grain. And all of a sudden, he jumped up two feet high and almost did a backflip.[​IMG] He hit his back very hard and you could hear it!! He looked at me and went "buckok". He continued eating grain the rest of the time I was down there. Oh Wooster!![​IMG]

    Sorry the story is so plain, I was talking to the computer. It typed it out for me.

    That is too funny! Your story is great because I have had Silkie roosters and I can completely picture one of them doing that. [​IMG]
    One time I was outside with my girls and I threw one of those popper firework things and all of my girls jumped at once. [​IMG]

    Oh!!! That's great! That has happened to my flock before!

    One time, Wooster made me mad. So, I picked him up and threw him and our shallow pond. I didn't know what I was thinking!!! Luckily, he was alright. Wooster swam!!! He actually swam!! So, he paddled like a dog with his feet, then got out of the pond. He was soaking wet!!! I felt sad after that happened. But we were all fine. He scampered away...

    No way, that's hilarious!
    I take my 3 silkie hens with me every time I go to the lake with my family. This June I brought my hen Ebony to the dock, which wasn't a great idea. I dropped some type of net, which scared her and she jumped into the lake! She was actually swimming for a few seconds, but I jumped in after her and got her out. Case in point; chickens can swim, but only for a few seconds. [​IMG]
