In Which I Am Smarter Than the Rooster

You want a piece of me? Go ahead, see me coming and rush into the chicken house, Mean Rooster!
img_489310
Wait for me in there. You’re so predictable. You think I’m not on to you?
img_493112
I’ve got your number. I know what you want. You want to STAB ME WITH YOUR STEELY BEAK while I try to collect eggs. Not this time, Mean Rooster.
img_48897
I don’t even want to go into your stupid old chicken house.
img_494114
You can have it.
img_494013
It’s all yours! How odd. You don’t seem to want to be in there, either, unless I’m in there.
img_501714
Oh, what’s this?
img_50191
It’s the door between the chicken house and the chicken yard. Not that I’m interested in that or scheming or anything.
img_49757
I’m walking away. I’m gone. I’m a dot, a vapor trail, a speck on the horizon. No need to keep yourself poised to rush back into the chicken house.
img_49684
You just go on and do something else and I’ll just– HA!
img_498210
HAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
img_5014132
I got the eggs, I got the eggs!!!!
img_499711
Too bad, so sad, Mean Rooster. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya!

Okay, I’m leaving now…..

    Whoo Hoo!! Good for you!!:shimmy:
    Glad you can get your eggs.
    And when he figures out that you’re going to take the eggs and starts running in the house, just put their feed out. He’ll go for the feed and forget about you….well, that’s the theory, anyway. lol

    Suzanne you SO MUCH make my day :snoopy: . You are genuine and original. Please don’t ever stop.

    He is a good rooster, protecting his hens…even though he does not have to. Are any of your hens sitting?

    The banty sits on the nest sometimes, and also one of the other hens has been spotted sitting on it, but I don’t think any of them are sitting on it regularly yet. If they don’t start soon, I think I’ll have to clear out the eggs and start the nest over because I’m afraid the eggs will go bad. (None of the eggs are banty eggs, but that banty likes to sit in the nest!)

    Dear SM:

    Is there such thing as a nice rooster? LOL. Everyone I know who has ever had one has mean rooster stories to tell. They must be territorial. Does he attack visitors?

    I adore starting my mornings with a giggle and you definitely help that. The last picture of the rooster scares me. LOL So glad you “fixed” him for the time being.

    A huge laugh to start my day!! Thank you!! Hmmm, might want to start now thinking of a greater outsmarting of the mean ol’ rooster, it looks like he’s got evil in his eye!

    I am so drooling over those chicken n’ biscuits!! :hungry:
    RECIPE! RECIPE! Even in “Just Recipes”, please? :heart:

    Ha! That’s our Suzanne – she can outsmart a rooster!! That will fix him – for now, anyway!! If he keeps trying to stab you, threaten him with this: :dancingmonster:

    that last stare is pure evil.
    have you tried winning him over with baked goods?????

    Hey Suzanne,

    HIL-LARI_OUS!! That last shot gives me the willies.
    Just curious, are you remotely considering sending him on to greener chicken yards (as was suggested before)?

    Way to go Suzanne ,you outsmarted that birdbrain,but be very careful he looks like he’s plotting revenge! :lol:

    I have had a couple offers to “help” him on his way to chicken heaven, but I’m having a hard time making that decision.

    You made me laugh! Do you throw scratch out in the chicken yard to keep him occupied. Chickens are greedy. Even if they have already eaten, he’ll run ove to get it so no one else does. The
    chickens would like a cookie too. :happyfeet:

    Good for you Suzanne! I thought I had out smarted mine, but even with the leaf rake, the nasty fowl got me. He broke the skin on
    both my legs and drew blood…that was through my jeans! Hubby and I talked again about letting him “free range”, but are afraid that he is so mean he’d probably survive predators, and stalk out house
    keeping us hostage inside! I felt like killing him yesterday, but I don’t think I have it in me. However…if during the course of nature, a predator should get him, well, that would be different.

    I’ve had a couple of roosters like that. The two that I have now are very passive so that’s nice. Each roo has his own personality.

    ROTFL! Been there. Done that. Congratulations on a successful egg heist.

    “Revenge is Sweet” so sayeth the Rooster.

    I’ve had nice roos. It’s funny though how sometimes they’ll be nice to some people but fasten that evil eye on another person, and for no good reason at all! What’s up with that? Maybe he thinks you’re part of his flock so he wants to prove you’re “not the boss of him” but he is of you.

    They don’t call them bird brains for nuthin’ though!

    Sounds like a great art heist or OO7! He has to protect his girls! :hug: Increase the stealth and he will be so bewildered, maybe he will give up. Let the man think he is in control and you can have anything you want.

    Suzanne, my blog post for today focused on your blog. Hope you don’t mind, but it’s a public “thank you” to you for helping me find my own happiness. :-)

    Good going-keep that rooseter wondering what your up to. Does he expect you should get nothing in return for feeding & watering him and his ladies? Sounds just like a male. Hugs, Bobbie

    I knew it! I knew you could not hurt that rooster. Outsmarting him was much more funny anyway. Loved this blog!!

    I had to laugh because I read your post title about you being smarter than the mean rooster and then immediately read the photo of the day title about the yummy Chicken and biscuits and of course my natural asumption was…..well you know! Glad you figured out something else for the meanie! I have had to pick my roosters up and carry them around with me to let them know I am boss. I have done this from the time they were chicks and now they are friendly. If my Barred Rock (he is the head honcho) shows the least bit of aggression, I scoop him up and carry him around like a football while I do chores. He hates being restricted and away from his ladies. But you have to show NO Fear when you start doing this.

    Suzanne – have you ever heard the old addage “Walk softly and carry a big stick”? Rooster attacks can become very ugly. I nearly lost an eye and an ear while trying to be kind and feed that ungreatful character. Be careful, he WILL get you.

    mean rooster is funny! he adds so much character to your farm and blogs. carrying him around like a football is hilarious! i put cricket in ‘love jail’ too which is the same behavior modification technique. some alpha males are a pain to put up with but usually they are worth the trouble.

    That last picture of that mean old rooster is the meanest picture by far. Makes me laugh. :-)

    Get Coachin Roosters.
    I love my boys and they are friendly and have never attacked. They are really good boys and take active roles with abbaies and the hens.
    Mr. Mean Roo would end up in the freezer, actually just did that a while a go with a few exotic roos that decided to try and get us and my kids. I know harsh but a roo that will take on people isn’t safe. years ago we tried, and allowed one to free range and he was always right there to get us, lol

    It would seem that I am not the only one cherishing the euphoria of dementia … the soothing escape … the high of the surreal … the shear glee of winning the insignificant, but able to recognize that significance … you have reached the next level Suzanne … the pinnicle is near … within reach … stretch … reeeaaach … gnash your teeth and it can be yours … omlets for breakfast ?

The Slanted Little House

"It was a cold wintry day when I brought my children to live in rural West Virginia. The farmhouse was one hundred years old, there was already snow on the ground, and the heat was sparse-—as was the insulation. The floors weren’t even, either. My then-twelve-year-old son walked in the door and said, “You’ve brought us to this slanted little house to die." Keep reading our story....
