I keep seeing this, but don't really know what it means. Help please!
It's when the rooster leaps on you and beats you rapidly with his wings - it can hurt!
Thanks. That's the image I had, but I wanted to be sure.
not with the wings, with his spurs
So he's actually flying at you feet first clawing you? OUCH!
Not clawing, but spurring you rapidly. I was going to add you'll know it when it happens to you.
Think THAT'S bad,...... I raise turkeys! Almost got blinded by a "Flying Kick" by a new mother hen!
So it's like a bunch of really fast kicks? Still OUCH. Can't imagine a turkey.
So there is an official name for that? Huh.....My old Roo would flog the crap out of me. One time I swore I was bleeding THRU my jeans. Strangely enough, his behavior stopped when my boys soccer ball was between the two of us. Lets just say, he ain't no Pele LOL
Got the picture!
