    once my JG rooster saved my slow RIR Pullet from a raccoon. All i heard was a very long crow so i look out side and he was running in to the field and then i saw a raccoon and my RIR hen running and flapping her way to the coop so i ran out there to save her but my rooster beat me to it when the raccoon saw a giant chicken running towards him he arched his back and my rooster kicked him with a lot force the raccoon went to the ground and ran off. i got him for meat...but now hes the hens protector!!!!

    I love a good rooster! They are worth their weight in chicken feed if they protect the flock. Way to go JG roo!

    Well, you got him for meat and now it's a good thing you did. He had enough meat on him to throw his weight around. [​IMG]

    I don't think that's the first JG I've heard of saving a hen. I'd like to get me one of those big boys one of these days for my girls.
