    Oliver my buff orpington rooster killed a ruffed grouse today. He's not very aggressive but he's very protective of his hens. Not 100 percent sure what happened but the grouse was dead with alot of neck feathers scattered about.

    I'd be heating up the oven. Grouse is very good.

    Pretty crazy. DW's grandpa said he used to have a rooster that would hunt the ditch banks for rooster pheasants and fight them.

    Can I borrow your rooster when I go grouse hunting next year?
