    We have lots of wild rabbits living on our land. Earlier today I walked outside to witness my rooster chasing a rabbit underneath my car. Poor bunny, it was kind of cute and funny though. Anyone ever seen their rooster chase anything unusual?

    Yep he is very protective of his girls and his territory. He's saved them from a mystery predator that actually broke into our coop quite a while back and he makes warning calls when he spots hawks.
