    I know its gotta be a gamey bird of some kind, just curious if anyone knows what kind of game bird. He is a mean sucker. Always getting into scrapes/ fights. Yer right about them being considered birds of prey, chickens realy are.....

    Chicken/velociraptor = one and the same. Looks like an Asil American game X. I don't doubt that he is king of the barnyard. Once upon a time (when I was a kid MANY years ago) every farm around here had one of those running with the farm flock. In the autumn they were removed for illicit purposes.

    [​IMG] so glad to know that our chickens aren't the only ones that sound like they are from Jurassic Park! I wonder what the neighbors thought the first time they heard the screech [​IMG]
