Bad, Bad, Rooster
We have two New Hampshire Red roosters ---- "Chicken George and Foreman". They are only 6 mos old now and it seems "Foreman" is the Alpha Male. Today he charged me. I was taken off- guard totally because the two roos have been just fine up until now.
They (service) 17 hens. They were all supposed to be hens, but you know how that goes. I charged him right back
and amazingly, he didn't back down at all! I could have kicked him, but that seemed to be over-kill. I am in the yard gardening every day and can't put up with this. Would a squirt bottle of water help at all? My husband handles them each night when he closes them up so they know he is in charge. But ---- I guess I am not, and what happens when the grand-kids come to visit? He is absolutely
gorgeous, but I might have to kill him. That would upset my husband, but he has been upset before.
Please help this marriage survive!
