My Dominique Roo, "the Dom", has had a stay of execution. He is the rooster who has come after me a few times, wing beats on my legs and lunges, but that's because I don't let him get close enough to me to do more than that. The hubby and I got everything ready at 0400, water boiling, knife sharpened, but he got loose from the husband (evidently this roo is NOT docile at 0400), and so we packed it up for a later date. I am now having second thoughts (I am a total pushover/bleeding heart when it comes to animals I raised) and he is on craigslist. I don't really want to keep him, I want a NICE rooster that I don't have to have eyes in the back of my head for, but recently he has been better behaved, that is, he leaves me alone. I have a little girl though and I don't want him to hurt her. I just feel so bad, he is pretty and he does a good job with the ladies. I am giving him 2 weeks on craigslist. After that, I am going to bite the bullet and process him. Sorry for the long rant, and I know I have posted about this before, but it has been weighing heavily on me and I needed to vent.
