    Went to feed my chicken this morning. So, as usual I started at the chickpen. At the moment I have 4 young ones in there, aged 12 weeks and a new mom with her chicks. I know one of the youngsters is a roo, but just in case I needed confirmation...
    I scattered some food and Mom immediately called her chicks to the food and had her back turned on the youngsters. The little roo ran up to her, jumped, grabbed the back of her neck, hopped on to her like a pro... and sat there cheeping like crazy, still holding on to the back of her head. Did I mention he's barely 3 months old?
    The poor hen just stood there, scandalized, too shocked to respond. What the heck was he thinking? She's only about 3 times bigger than him![​IMG]
