    This afternoon I rounded up my older Roo's. (They are headed for freezer camp tomorrow ) There was one that was giving me trouble and I was chasing him around and around the coop, [​IMG] While I was doing that one of my young RIR roo's was following me. I finially cornered him under one of the roosts and was trying to get my hands on him when my little roo ( half the size of the white rock roo ) zips out from between my feet and grabs the big guy by the neck and pins him to the floor.... He held him there till I could grab the big guy and let go as soon as I said " Good Boy, Thanks! " [​IMG]

    This little guy than struted around the coop ( and I mean struted with his chest out purring ) and than came back to me to sit on my feet to be patted and praised.

    He never even put a mark on the big guy, but he had him right around the neck , and slamed him face first to the floor.
    What a smart little roo. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ohh I agree.....So far no freezer camp for him and I so wish I had a coop cam lol [​IMG]
    I just hope he stays this way, and he is so good with his girls and so far him and the other 3 little roo's ( they were born around july 4th) are best buds ( at least for now till the hormons kick in )

    He's a friendly little guy, that has shown he can and will help out lol
