Poor Peachoff is dropped attempting the Triple Toe! Ice Dancers Rhodansk & Peachoff Loose the Gold!!
Seriously, Cheeka, what was going on with these chickens?
Pecking order, they are fighting.
Yep, but my hens don't fight with my roosters. So I'm curious about the pecking order. I want details.
Curling is a lot harder than it looks!
Rhody is a bantam RIR cockerel, he was dancing for Bantam Cochin x EE Peach, as part of the mating ritual... but she chest bumped him and they sparred. I got some nice flaring pics too... I wouldn't mind if she bred with any of my bantam boys, although I really want her to choose Henry, the bantam buff Cochin that is so famous for his clown shoes... but, he's immature yet... and not aggressive for her or towards her...
I put them together this afternoon, they hung out for a bit, then he went wide around her and rejoined the bachelor group
A couple of my pullets will stand up to Hephaestus (our cockerel) when he tries to get to high-handed with them. They will raise hackle feathers and jump at him. it's really funny to watch because he always gets this look like "What do I do now, she's not obeying me"?
Coco and Honey are working on their synchronized treat eating with the hopes that it becomes the newest chicken olympic sport.
Mine always fought with the low end rooster lol. He was a bantam.
