So I am going about my normal daily chores in the chicken breeding condo as usual, going from pen to pen feeding and watering, collecting egg's and all the normal stuff. I always save the big layer pen for last, so I goes in look around the water is full and the feeder full, I turn to gander in the nest boxes and slam. From behind I get hammered in the calfs by this rooster a 9 mo old LF WLR Cornish bulldozer . I turn and look and there the idiot stands 6 ft away facing me all puffed up wings out hackles up and giving me the evil eye . A smile crosses my cheeks as I squint my good eye and loudly squak a few very colorful medefores and yeah it's on now. I deftly lay a size 11 boot to his chest as he hurles backward 10 ft and we begin our dance . If there was a video camera present I would have looked like Bruse Lee after a bad hangover LOL, I was moving through the pen steady on his A33 booting him from one side to the other, he flies up on the roost and I move to hand swings batting wildly connecting with a few good right & left combo's to the body bouncing him to H3ll and back looking like Rocky Balboa in the 12th round. I was proud of the hen's as they hunker quietly in the corner in disbelief, after Oh 2 min or so the meley ceases. I calmly walk around him and the lil Bas**d doesn't even have a feather ruffled LOL, but I surmised he as learned who is boss. I might add he has been a great rooster up to this point, and may have been feeling his oats as the weather has been nice lately. If you keep decent numbers of chickens for as long as some of us have it is bound to happen and has happened to me more time than I care to recall. Tomorrow I will make my rounds as usual and not draw his suspision I will turn my back and wait, smiling of course and at the ready. We will see if the saga continues, my guess is it won't as I have been able to save many a good rooster using this little technic. AL This is the big cocky buggar. And this is one half of the layers boxing ring, it's 12'X12' & 8' tall the run is the same dimension. P.S. I will post again tomorrow on the day's esscapade if there is one LOL.
