    Ok, don't laugh, I did after I got over the shock, but before you read any further, empty your mouth of all liquids and cover your keyboard, warn your family and coworkers.

    I have a confused rooster, it's not nugget, it's one of the Turkens, Flat Top McNuggets.
    He stopped pestering the hens about a month ago, and he really was a pain about it too, wouldn't leave them alone and was violent. Now I know why he stopped, he has a new love interest. The chickens have toys, their favorites are empty plastic gallon jugs they knock around. I walked out to come to work this morning and there was Mr. McNuggets in the front yard mating with a plastic gallon jug. He hopped off, shook himself off and strutted away like he had just graced the Queen of the Flock with himself.

    I've noticed that within the past month and now that the girls don't want to........ They run and hide. My roo is very well behaved. They're just not interested, so he's been leaving them alone.

    Well.. that's one confused rooster. I guess if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with [​IMG]
    You could be really nice to him and fill the jug with warm water.. maybe glue some feathers to it. I'll stop there- i think you know what i'm headed for.
    Maybe he's nearsighted?

    I don't know whose reaction was funnier, my just standing there or my mom just calling me to tell me he was out there doing this again. I hadn't told her about it, so it's obviously not a case of mistaken identity this morning. Hmmmm I can get feathers from the art teacher and paint a pretty hen face on it?

    Had a parakeet that liked his jingle toy. And I mean really liked his jingle toy. He'd ring that bell at least 20 times a day. I asked a vet about it and was told many creatures like to 'bop'.

    Had a tom cat that had a thing for a fluffy bedspread. He'd been neutered but you wouldn't know it to watch him jump on that blankie.

    Take a video and send it in to America's Funniest animals. Maybe you could win some chicken scratch....
