    When the sun starts going down they all line up on the roosts that I hung. Just a basic 2x4 nailed up in the corner so they can hop up on at night. I am making sure they are settled for the night and I see one of my very vocal hens pacing back and forth because she waited and cant get her normal spot on the roost. She paces and paces and then she just stopped go under my big mottled houdan rooster and grabs a beak full of tail feathers and jerks him backwards!!! Right off the roost! Then she happily jumps up in "HER" spot that was temporarily taken.. My jaw about dropped. She is some prissy girl! She got her way though!!!

    Poor houdan was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
