    I was putting the flock away today and was using a few pieces of bread to get them to go into the coop. Everyone came but Dr. Girlfriend. She is the smallest and the most picked on so she occasionally tries to be elsewhere. I went to go encourage her in the right direction. I was careless and the gate to the run did not close completely (new gate). My Japanese Kabo bantam rooster came out and followed me out in the yard. I was thinking that I was going to have to chase him back in, too. I got behind Dr. Girlfriend and he came up on the other side and chased her into the garden toward the coop. She tried to head off to the other end of the yard and he headed her off and herded her back to the coop. Good Monarch!! Good Rooster!!!

    A good roo is as much of a help as a bad one is a pain in the fanny. Glad you have a good boy!
