    I went out to check the water (break ice) and as expected he lunged at me this time I had the mind about me to quickly reach out and grab his tail end. My oh my, I have never heard him make such a noise. I promptly tucked him under my arm and went about spreading some corn. He was not so happy to have his ladies see him in such a way and was even more upset when I walked away. I decided to get a pair of scissors and cut off the band on his leg from when I had 3 roos. While standing in front of the sink in the bathroom he made a plucky little noise and I realized he saw himself in the mirror. [​IMG] Oh, he was not happy. I went back out and put him in with the girls, I swear they laughed at him.

    Years ago we had three barred rock free range roosters (no close neighbors.) Every time I hung out clothes the # 1 rooster would fly at me with his spurs in the air. It got so I had to take a broom every time I went outside--so we ate him! Can you believe the #2 rooster did the same thing--so we ate him! Again, #3 met the same fate. They would even sneak around the corner of the house to come at me.

    Quote:As I said, while I was holding him I went in to look for scissors to cut off his leg band. If he was going to poop it would be on me...not the first time. The dog was a little freaked out to see him in the house though, took her a few minutes to notice i was carrying him. But he's been respectful since.
