    Were you messing with his girls? Does he have enough girls?
    He's challenging you to be the dominant one. Don't let him get away with it. Not mch meat for a cassrole on those Polish boys

    It is is the air. My Ameraucana roo did the same thing to me this afternoon. He came at me from behind. I sent him flying to.
