To share with all.. Today is a sad day, after feeding my RIR's I normally crouch down and talk to everyone so I can see how they look, only two don't mind being handled but that is fine, I can respect their dislike for being man handled so I don't do it. Anyhoo... While crouched down today and chatting, with the girls eyeballing me and chatting back I got a sneak attacked from behind by the rooster. Never.. I mean never has he even puffed up to me.. took me by surprise. Thankfully I was still holding the jug I use to carry the food and beat him repeatedly until he decided he was done, but that took a minute. On the positive side I walked away with scratches barely deep enough to draw blood (naturally I am wearing shorts today too), he does now have some impressive spurs so I know it could have been worse. This now leaves me both mad and upset. Mad he attacked and upset that this is probably his demise. I guess I am hoping it was a one off and his attack was just testing the man waters with me, if not.. well I shall put in practice what I learned on the 'Great Chicken Adventure'. Although I hate to admit it, I may while doing so.
