I know that roosters will protect their flock but I thought this was too cute. I went out in the chicken yard to take a few pics to update my BYC page. Of course, the ladies didn't like that at all and everyone but Louis, the rooster, was making a quite a fuss. When a few of the girls ran to a corner in a panic, Louis calmly walked over and stood in front of them as if to say "It's all right, ladies, I can handle this." I managed to snap a picture of it. Doesn't he look calm and in charge?
