Roosters and shoes
I had an odd experience this evening. I came home from work and went into the barn. I was wearing clogs, which I only wear when it starts getting cold out (today was probably the first time I wore them in the barn). My #2 rooster, Tweedledum, attacked my shoe and leg. He was quite aggressive and I really had to actively fight him off.
Once I was satisfied that he had given in, I came into the house. I needed to bring water back out for the chickens, so I changed into my old sneakers before I went. Tweedledum was his normal self, curious and accepting.
Is it possible that he does not make an association between my feet and me? Or that there is just something about the shape and color of a clog that freaked him out? It was a weird experience.
