Our good old barred rock Charlie has done it again. He sparred at me. That is the third time I believe. I was just trying to get Maddy away from eating his tail area (his feathers don't grow at his tail due to that reason) and he puffed his neck feathers up. So I got Maddy away and stood before Charlie all big and proud, I hear your supposed to give them a gentle kick so I attemped to and he jumped back clucking like crazy. I looked at him and Charlie started to pick at ground (sort of like how male gorillas defend their territory). So then I said "Whatcha gonna do Charlie? You think your gonna kick my butt?", then I put my foot foward because I was getting closer to him and he sparred. He jumped quite a bit higher and more forward then the other times. And what did I do? Well seeing as the gentle kick doesn't work I behaved like a chicken. I know this is silly but I... I squatted down a wee bit and flapped my wings (arms), made clucking noises (which had all the hens come to me I'm loved), picked random sticks or rocks off the ground like he was doing, stomped the ground and did my little chicken acting towards him. Charlie froze up and puffed his neck feathers and attemped to spar once more but I stopped him by quickly standing up and nudging him with my foot. He "BOK BOK BOK BOKKKED" and jumped the other direction running away and looking back as he ran. My mom didn't care much and just said "don't hurt yourself or the chicken", she was there setting up the cage we'll be seperating for him because of his tail injury. The hens kinda stood around watched and after Charlie and I were done they went back to the scratch and chasing the younger chickens away. I walked past Charlie a few times and he clucked and walked away from me. I know Moochie (herself the chicken) loves Charlie (they mate quite a bit) but I can't have them mate when I'm around right? So what do I do when he mates with a hen when I'm around? The gentle kick? Also I feel like I haven't won, what do you think?
