    [​IMG] Whoops.... sent my 14 yr old to the coop to get todays eggs. I didn't even think about the fact that he NEVER goes out to the coop.... poor thing, he got flogged by 2 of the roos! [​IMG] My Sebright 'The Captain' and one of the larger up and coming roos... I'm guessing it was one of the Ameraucanas. He said The Captain was chest high on him trying to flog him [​IMG] And that Spaghetti kept trying to make him stop flogging him [​IMG]

    I'm glad my roosters are small and my children tough [​IMG]

    It never occurred to me that they would go after a stranger. Guess he needs more chicken yard chores [​IMG] Or bring more treats [​IMG]

    LMAO I made the mistake of using the snow shovel to block the Captain from flogging my toddler... now he (my toddler) thinks he should grab the shovel and chase them all around the yard [​IMG]

    My grandfather's rooster chased my dad around the yard one day.
    They had him, not for dinner, but for lunch.

    Then there was the time my grandfather told my dad that the best way to catch a chicken was to sprinkle salt on the tail. Imagine a little boy chasing chickens with a salt shaker!
