Okay sold 4 birds to a neighbor .. We have Mexican older folks that do not have great english skills ... So this gal wanted fresh birds for her daughters wedding I had 3 cockerel growing up, We could sell told her I have hen EE she layed 4 or 6 eggs none since she is year old you can stew her..
She wanted the 4.. Fast forward told her I would bring them to her as she does not drive .. Caught 2 of the boys last one was flighty found it's way to my little coop with Smudge my Marans coop and smudge then thought he should protect it. The ensuing Smudge escaped because I had a net (My birds hate nets)..
Smudge spent the night in the blackberry brambles other side of the property.
This morning I went out with my other half no dogs.. I found smudge still in the blackberry .. Started calling him by heavens he followed me to his coop .. It is raining here this morning he was pretty bedraggled .. BF did grab Smudge he was at the fence could not quite figure to come around the door...
BF was able to grab him by his feet placed him back with his girls...

Oh they learn what a net is really fast. Only my halfbreed rooster will risk getting near it and then only to attack the net if I grab a bird with it. If no one's caught, he runs with the rest of them. He's a brave thing trying to rescue hens and chicks. He never ever comes after me. If I grab them, he runs up and stops 3 feet away and bu-buks nervously while pacing. Once they settle he relaxes and wanders off.

I reroofed the silkie pens and finished the side walls yesterday afternoon. My back is killing me even more. I pulled something with that AC and should have taken it easy but rain was coming.

I hope that you're feeling better!
