I was messing with his favourite girl, though. One of my chickens is old. She doesn't lay, is fat and lives a good geriatric life. A week ago she has been having problems with her poop and I have been washing her behind off. Today I went to catch her in the coop and all the girls starting freaking out. As I was holding my old girl, Gingy the Roo- who comes past my knees in height- races over and bites my hand... then races away. He goes to the other side of the coop and lerts out a giant cockadoodledoooooo!! *sigh* So do I overlook this and focus on his perfectly acceptable record for the past year or banish him.....? What would you do? Once a biter always a biter? Or just looking out for his girl?
