    Poor Stan. Today he was not such a man. Had to be reminded that the OldChick is the mother hen of his flock.

    I pin him by the neck and chest....

    [​IMG]

    Then roll him on his side....

    [​IMG]


    And lay him on the ground where Maria immediately takes position and stares at him. I mean really stare at him. Neither moved for a full minute....

    [​IMG]

    Maria leaves and the others look at him from a short distance making low clucking noises....

    [​IMG]

    The hens lose interest and I make Stan lay on his side for several minutes

    [​IMG]

    To really insult him I cuddle him to me. He is SO embarrassed when I kiss him.......the degradation!

    I let him go and he hides behind the his gals to straighten his glorious tail...

    Maybe he makes you remind him because he loves to snuggle but does not want to admit it. [​IMG]

    I pin my roo to the ground like that when he is rude, too, but the hens don't get in on teaching a lesson like yours do. OH THE HUMILIATION! Stan has such expressive eyes. It looks like if he could blush, he would have been when he was given a good cuddle. Thanks for taking the pics, I got a good laugh out of it.
