I have a large protective RIR rooster. He is 18 months old. While I was out near the chicken yard I heard a ruckus behind the coop. I wasn't overly concerned due to numerous roosters and occasional bantering. I did go to have a look. I found my Alpha rooster on the step of the coop with a very bloody leg. It was so bloody that it had pooled some on the step. It appeared to be coming from the spur. He has very large spurs. Upon closer examination, Steve (the rooster in question) was uninjured. I then became concerned that he may have eviscerated on of the other birds. I did a beak count and found that none of the birds were injured. Could it be that he encountered a predator and gave it what for? I did not think to check for a blood trail until later and we had had some rain by then. I wish I would have taken pictures. I know if I was reading this I would be saying...yea right. Any ideas?
