    this morning while I was making my rounds, feeding the ducks, rabbits, let the chickens out, fed them ect. before i had to get a shower to get ready for work.

    Anyway, J.B. our oldest, most dominate tomcat, who is passive-agressive..he rules over the other cats with an almost stern quiet, that says "step out of line and i'll make sure you can never sit again!"

    anyways, he must have decided one of our hens got too close for comfort, cause he took a swat at her, she DID NOT like it one bit!, those hackle feathers go up, and she's all over him in a heartbeat!...J.B...backed down almost instantly, but little miss hen wasn't done, she decided to chase him back and forth across the feild a few times, then beat up on a couple roosters! [​IMG]

    it makes me wish I carried a camera around all the darned tome now!

    I never realised how plucky HENS can be

    you know, compared to some of our hens, our roosters are...well, chicken [​IMG]

    it makes me wonder if push came to shove, WHO it would be to protect the flock! [​IMG]

    a couple of our hens LOVE to harass the cats on a daily basis, they also like to steal the cats food [​IMG]

    Oh yeah, my hens harrass the cats all the time. The cats don't even like going in the backyard any more!

    [​IMG] I want that hen. I can't believe she beat up the poor roosters! We have a stray cat that comes around a watches. I was nervous at first but I am pretty sure that the hens have warned him because he doesn't have that hungry look in his eyes anymore [​IMG]

    I have two Manx cats, they are good hunters, always bringing me home gifts.LOL They will not mess with the chickens, even young ones. If they are laying down and a chicken comes by they will get up out of the way. They sit patiently while the chickens eat their food, and never,never sleep in one of the chickens spots. They've had their butt beat one too many times. [​IMG]
