    Here are the rules:

    Players for Team 1:

    1 Fox

    Players for Team 2:

    1 Tiny ticked off chicken owner
    1 Huge totally ticked off Orp Roo

    The Rules:

    Be the first to succeed...Full Contact...No Holds Barred

    Team 1 - wishes to carry a chicken into the woods

    Team 2 - wishes to annihilate Team 1 and prevent losing a chicken

    So...Team 1 starts off the game by standing on the first chicken it gets close enough to from a group of 19 birds running hither and yon. Team 2 starts off on separate sides of the at ground level and in a direct line to Team 1 and the other on the second story deck.

    The game begins....

    ticked off owner screams and runs down the stairs and is then met by the totally ticked off rooster who begins pacing alongside the ticked off owner as they approach Team 1. Team 1 begins evaluating possible strategies to avoid Team 2 and still succeed. Team 2 is furious...there is yelling, some cursing and tons of growling from the rooster. Team 1 looks up just in time to receive a punt to the face and get knocked off of the chicken...who leaps up and flees the scene.

    Team 1 makes a run for the woods with rooster chasing...

    Team 2 WINS!

    Team 1 suffers a traumatic brain injury and facial lacerations not to mention a pounding headache from the illegal yet perfect punt to the face. [​IMG]

    So...the roo involved....Lancelot


    The hen:


    The feathers lost:


    The psycho maniac owner...... ME all 92 lbs of me Ruby is in the coop next to Lancelot and okay...she was shocky but has recovered.

    Cynthia...he will start suffering delusions of grandieur if I am not careful. LOL

    My DH said this evening that he is seeing his little wife in an entirely new and dangerous light. [​IMG] First shooting the coyote on the run and now punting a fox. I do not think he trusts me the way he used to...or at least my temper. [​IMG] all he could say was "dayum honey dayum".

    That's okay - you tell your husband you will defend him the same way! That should make him feel better...

    What a great story!

    Your hen looks a real lot like one of mine that just got attacked by a fox before my dog got out there and chased it away (I don't have a rooster right now). She's a NH Red, but maybe there's a cross there, because except for the feathery feet, she's a dead ringer. Anyway, we had to put her down because she got too injured by the fox. :sad:

    I hope you gave your roo some extra treats for that performance. He's a keeper!
