Roosters Will Be Roosters

Apr
21


I’ve rarely seen my roosters actually hurt each other unless they’re confined (which is why I no longer keep any roosters in the chicken house/yard), but boys and roosters will be boys and roosters. They’ve always got something to prove–




–to each other if no one else, because I don’t think the hens are that impressed!

    Reminds me of teen-age boys fighting in the schoolyard. (At least when I was in school. Now – sadly – weapons seem to be involved.)

    I’m pretty sure after this little dust up, they each strutted away thinking to themselves, “Well! I guess I showed HIM who’s boss!”

    Hence, the expression “don’t get your feathers all ruffled.”

    I don’t let mine fight, I get in the middle of it and break it up. I have had the day when the spurs were our and one got hurt.
    Sorry if I ruined your day, even the chickens don’t get away with fighting.

    I never found breaking them up helped. They would just go back at it as soon as I walked away. Spring is in the air….

    I think it’s natural. They are usually just messing around. Only twice in the last three years have I seen a rooster truly hurt another rooster, and in those cases I interfered. Usually they just walk away from each other. That’s why I keep all the rooster free-ranging, so they can walk away.

    Both those roosters thought “if only I had an arm and a fist…why I’d…..”

    I agree with you about the hens. They seem to totally ignore it. Silly roosters!

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....
