Im so proud of my Zuesy, I took my babies out for a day in the sun yesterday , 2 meaties and 5 Speckled Sussex 5 week olds. and put them in a makeshift pen connected to the big run, One of the hens, Reba, Red Cochin 3yrs old came over looked at the chicks and stuck her head through the pen and pecked one of the meatie babies in the head, the chick cried out and Zuesy ( Avatar) came to the rescue, he got in between the fence and Reba and shoved her away with his shoulder with a kinda like a disapproving grunt noise. LOL, Reba walked away obviously not happy about it, Zues just stood and looked at the babies then went on about his own bussiness, I have never seen him defend chicks before, I hope he is as good with his own chickie kids. I just love that Boy! Previously posted in the wrong forum.
