In the Brooder
- Jul 31, 2011
This morning I was sitting on the deck having my cup of coffee at sunrise. My Black Sex linked pullet gave out a warning cry. A tom cat had jumped over our fence in the backyard. and He was stalking her. All of a sudden my two dominate Silver Laced Wynodottes came running out of the backyard. They stopped in their tracks when they saw the cat. All of a sudden their neck feathers flaired up and they began screaming. In a flash they had charged the cat, followed by 8 other screaming chickens. The cat had no idea what to do. He arched his back and blew his tail up. He hissed and spit at them. He made a B- line and jummped over the fence, he was gone in a cloud of dust. The chickens remained at the fence watching the cat run away still screaming and clucking. I cannot believe what I saw.They were like a pact of Raptors chasing down their prey. I am very proud of my girls, especially proud of my two dominate females who protected the other girls. There will be extra treats, hugs and kisses today. I LOVE MY GIRLS !!
