The neighbors to the left of me have chickens as do the neighbors who are diagonal to me. To avoid confusion in this story, I am going to give my diagonal neighbor the name of Fred. Fred's chickens and turkeys often get out of their pen. He has a lot of animals on his one acre plot and they don't all seem cared for. Anyway, yesterday, I saw a large, white rooster(beautiful bird) standing outside the coop of the neighbor's to the left of me. Because those neighbors are gone for the weekend, I decided to put their rooster back in the coop.(they are friends of mine) But when I got close I realized that it wasn't their rooster but, I think, Fred's. Fred's rooster was staring intently into the neighbor's chicken run. I have no idea if he wanted to mate, fight their roosters, or drink from their full waterer. He did have an open mouth and seemed to be panting. The rooster stared into the other run so long that I assumed he was thirsty. I tried to bring him water but when I got close, he lifted his wings and stared intently at me. So, I assumed that he wasn't a very friendly rooster and left him alone. But why the heck did he come out of his yard-around a privacy fence- to stare into a strange chicken coop in the first place? Are roosters territorial or was he just thirsty? Before anyone asks, I can not talk to Fred because he and his wife refuse to answer the door when we knock. They hide inside.
