So yesterday, as I was dealing with Christmas decorations, I heard a ruckus in the yard. I looked out the kitchen window, and saw several of my chickens running toward the house, panicked. I scanned the field for a predator, but couldn't see any. Then my "Lucky Roo" went flying across the driveway with his hackles up, looking absolutely majestic. I rushed outside, and saw my rooster fending off a hawk that was attempting to abscond with one of my babies (3 months old). I'm not sure if the hawk took off because I was approaching, or the rooster had actually defeated it, but I was so proud of my boy, and ecstatic that he protected the baby, even though she is actually not one of his "girls", yet. I had never witnessed anything like this...so impressive! I scooped up the little girl and took her inside to calm her down and check for damage. Has anyone else had a similar experience?
