    Yesterday I had let my chickens out to free range for a few hours. I had to run to the grocery store real quick so I just went ahead and left the chickens out. When I came back home I saw a couple of teenage boys walking aimlessly up my street. Seeing that my chickens were all in the front yard I did not immediatly go into the house. Instead I hung out around the side of the house and in the garage watching what these boys were going to do since by this time they were standing in front of my house. I was waiting for them to come into my yard and mess with my chickens so that I could pounce on them but they stayed out in the street. I could see them stomping their feet and making noises and jestures towards the chickens. As I did a few things in the garage all of a sudden I heard the boys screaming. As I came around the front I saw my Polish rooster chasing both of them down the street and around the bend. The boys split up and one circled back only for the rooster to follow him. I calmly just walked towards them as the boy had quit running now but was in a face off with the rooster. When the boy saw me he started screaming for me to get the rooster away from him. I smiled and then whistled. The rooster slowly started walking toward me with his chest puffed out and very proud. The boy asked me why the rooster chased him I told him he was just protecting his girls. The rooster walked right back over to the girls and the boys left.

    About ten minutes latter the boys returned this time there was a girl with them. I knew that they were up to no good and were going to try and get the rooster to chase them again. This time I did not give them the opportunity. I walked out to them and told them to go away because I know they are up to no good. They tried to assure me that they weren't but I knew better. I told them that if they start [messing] with the rooster then he would attack them again and when he did that he would fly up in their face and spurr their eyes out! And when that happens I was not going to call off the roo! They left hopefuly learning a little something!!
