Rooster Face Off
Clover, the bantam rooster (stage left) has been feeling his oats. I don’t think he realizes that The Colonel (stage right) is at least three times his size. Maybe he has a Napoleon complex. In this rare rooster face off, Henrietta senses that all is not well and hustles out of the way.
Moments later, Clover lost his nerve, turned tail and ran. Smart rooster.
