    This is a warning to all us chicken owners out there.

    The other night I was attacked once again by my handsome rooster, Colonel. He's just protecting his flock! He likes a challenge every couple weeks or so, but if you fight back, he retreats and leaves you alone for a while. I used to be able to give him a few swift kicks with my boot, but he's cutting through my boots now, so I've been using a broom to swat at him.

    Well, he challenged me again and I went after him with a stick. Unfortunately, he jumped up to spur me again and got the stick in the head. He staggered away and then collapsed. I was horrified! I thought I had killed him![​IMG] Luckily, he was only knocked out and got up a minute or two later. He was back to his old, ornery self by the next morning.

    Well, I was so traumatized by the whole ordeal, I commented about it on Facebook.

    Three days later, the County Sheriff came to my house to follow-up on a report that I had "beaten my rooster with a baseball bat." I told the sheriff all about it and said, "he's right over there!"

    Then, a day or two after that, we got a call from a women who said she'd be happy to take the poor rooster that we're abusing.

    I know it's safe to post this here, because I've read other posts about rooster attacks. But, outside of chicken owners, I don't think the general public understands about defending yourself against an ornery rooster.

    Take care and beware! [​IMG]

    You know, I think I would be inclined to give "the poor abused rooster" to the lady who wants to "rescue" him. Let her find out first hand what snookems is really like.

    Good Grief anniemary, time to trim your facebook friend list. Also, make sure your page is PRIVATE. That would feel just creepy to me to know that someone I actually knew called the cops on me for defending myself against a chicken. If it was me, on that same link, I'd be sure and let that "someone" know that they were totally out of line and they were welcome to babysit my rooster to make sure he was being treated properly.

    Quote:Definately make your page private and trim that friends list. Before you trim your list I would put a post on there telling who ever called the cops needs to remove themselves.
