"Simon" was 15 months old. Flogged my leg when I walked in the coop two mornings ago. Even though he didn't have spurs yet, it hurt plus scared the pants off me. And he was going to come at me for round two, except I chased him out of the coop. He was guarding his girls and I respect that, but I can't keep a dangerous animal. I have grandkids so he lost his one and only chance. I gave him back to the man I got him from as a chick. In return I got a Beautiful Big Rock Rooster that is older and more mellow. Wish me luck on this one.
