Among numerous critters, I have two large, mixed breed goats and a large Rhode Island Red (Henry III) rooster running free. The rooster has bonded with the goats and spends a lot of time in the goat pen. On several occasions I have watched him jump up on top of one of the goats early in the morning, give a good crow, and then jump down...the goat just calmly stands there. No photo yet but I'll get one eventually. There is little doubt that they have bonded. The rooster also likes the animal crackers I give the goats with their feed, and if I don't give the rooster one myself, he will take them out of the goat food bowl while they are eating. Anyone else noticed bonding between chickens and other animals? Bob P.
