That Bloody Rooster

That Bloody Rooster.  Really.

Hannah was the first to discover some red streaks on The Colonel’s neck. Upon closer inspection I saw that he had injured his comb. Curiously a couple of the Barred Rock hens are in a similar state. It seems that The Colonel may have gotten a little too friendly with some of The Girls.

Hannah is very dismayed by this new frisky behavior The Colonel has been showing lately. She marches right over and demands, “Colonel, you leave her alone. Stop that!”

I told her that he’s doing what roosters do. They’re chickens. You’ve just got to let them do their thing.

She replied, “By they [the girls] don’t like it!”

I said, not to worry. The girls can take care of themselves.

Apparently they’ve done just that.
