JSwan...how do you deal w/Chucky??!!
Sniff, sniff. My rooster has turned on me. Raised the b*****d in the house for the first 14 weeks of his life. Hormones have kicked in and I swear he's stalking me.:eek: I was talking baby talk to him the other day, he was cocking his head hanging on my every word, turned around and the flogging began. Damn if I didn't wack and he came back for more.:eek:
His name WAS ROOfus and now I'm thinking it's Tyson. I've got 2 and the second one may be renamed Purdue as he's been eyeing me too.
Do I really need them to protect my hens??!!
Hubby grew up on a working farm and is used to eating the food he raised but he's having a hard time thinking about eating our roos.
The buggers weigh about 8#'s so doing the grabbing by the legs, turning them upside down, etc. just doesn't seem like any fun. I'd do it if I knew it would nip it in the bud. Time for dinner??!!
OMG, JSwan: my rooster was reincarnated and lives with you!!
Gosh that sounds familar.... Mine would actually wait at the bottom of the porch for me. I'm not sure why but he wouldn't chase me up onto the porch.
And if you bent over near him, he LOVED to jump on your back and flog you.
The hubby and I are both in law enforcement and probably a bit more paranoid than the average people, so those suprise attacks didn't go over very well.... :D:D:D:D
As far as rooster effectiveness goes, I haven't lost a hen since that jerk went to the big coop in the sky... Our new roos are not near as evil but seem to do the job.
