    i caught him chasing a squirrel across the backyard. i don't know if the squirrel knew his intentions, but he/she (i don't think the rooster cares) was running for it's life

    The rooster was doing his job - protecting his territory from an intruder. Poor squirrel probably didn't know what was happening. [​IMG]

    That squirrel was lucky he didn't get caught. Your rooster, and probably hens too, would have made a meal out of him!
