In the Brooder
- Aug 16, 2021
oof poor rooster poultry drama really is something ain’t it.@BeepBeepspaghetti how's your roo this morning?
I have to tell you this story. Muscovy females when broody as you probably already know can be fierce when broody. I have 2 broody right now neither has eggs but that doesn't stop them Well Dolly the Muscovy hates our main rooster who is king over the barn yard except for the geese they put him in his place ,well this started last year when Dolly had ducklings when she would come out she would go after our roo. He wasn't messing with her ducklings she just picked him out to go after, once the ducklings are on their own she stops. Well this year none of the ducks were allowed to hatch, I know mean ole me but anyway she is after him again, he tries to fight her which is hilarious because she doesn't care she just keeps on chasing him. She has never caught him thank goodness he's 12years old but still fast. But I tell ya watching these birds is more fun than going to the circus.
Yep like @Crazy Maizie says it's never-ending drama.
Thankfully he seems to be doing ALOT better, we let them free roam today ,( whit the drake in a separate place) and from what I observed he seems quite back to normal, his vent isn’t bleeding, he’s just a bit red from the feather plucking the duck did , he seems scared to get near the place the fight took place, but other than that he’s back to acting mostly normal. Still going to keep an eye on him though.
