    Yesterday my neighbors roo noticed my girls roaming around in my back yard. He was going coo-koo trying to find a way into my yard. Today he finally figured out how to jump over the 6' chainlink fence that separates the 2 proprties, and was strutting his stuff all day and dancing around like a teenager. the lil bugger wouldn't let me get near him to catch him and put him back so i had to use a fishing net. Wouldn't you know it 1/2 hour later he was back, I am going to start charging him by the hour!!!

    I got a kick out of it so I had to share

    I can picture my two boys doing that.

    As it is, they have no neighboring hens to lust after, just the segregated ones here. These two are also segregated from each other because they have been intent on beating each other to a pulp ever since they got their hormones a year and a half ago.

    They spent all day today smashing their beaks against the poultry mesh fence separating them, trying to get at each other.

    Yes, roosters are entertaining all right.
