I was walking through the back yard with our chickens while ago and I felt something hit the side of my ankle. I looked down and our Rhode Island Red rooster was trying to get my attention. I guess he was upset because he was off having a romantic interlude with one of our hens when I brought their treat out this morning. He wasn't trying to hurt me or anything, just getting my attention. I got him close to the fence and picked him up and pet him. I swear these chickens are the gentlest chickens I've ever been around. Guess I better get another hand of bird seed to bring outside so he's happy.
