Speaking of crimes...I was chased into my own summer-kitchen about 18 months ago by a hefty NN cock. He was around 10 pounds and thought he could lick the world. As I breached the threshold, I tripped on something and went down on one knee and with precision timing, said bird sunk two formidable spurs into my ample behind. Yes it hurt but mostly, I was offended. I hadn't run from a chicken since I was 8 or 9 years old so I really disappointed myself when I reacted so quickly and dispatched this beautiful bird. Most people I told about it (including Walt) applauded and relayed a similar experience of his own but I really liked the bird and could have dealt with him in a better way....that is a wetter way for OUR operation.
