    NEVER bend over in front of a roo with your back to him. My grand daughter was showing me where a broody was hiding a nest. Not thinking about the roo, I got down to check the nest out. About the time I got a good look at the nest, the roo had his target lined up. Had I caught him, he would have been dinner. I will be sitting on an extra pllow for a few days, thanks to my EX-FAVORITE roo.

    [​IMG] Sorry about your *ahem* injury. I'm sure you'll feel better after you have some chicken soup! [​IMG]

    I have to admit, I was once injured in the same region while gathering eggs. I subdued my attacker with a handy dandy shovel and relieved him of his spurs. Next stop was the trade fair.

    I think there would be a late night visit to the coop and one less chicken in the morning.

    Husband would NEVER let me live something like that down.

    Ouch, I'm sorry! [​IMG]

    I got a goose bite there once... I picked up a baby goose from its parents, and turned around to walk away. I learned my lesson the HARD way! [​IMG]

    I'm sorry you learned the same lesson, and I'm only laughing with you, not at you... [​IMG]

    They usually attack from the rear, so I'm thinking that if we wear a mask on ours, maybe they'll think we're still watching them! Mine isn't brave enough to attack while I'm facing him.

    Last year my roo went after a friend of mine while visiting me. As the Queen of Hearts so profoundly said, "Off with his (her) head!!".
    I will be the first to say............"and a mighty tasty chicken dinner that was"
