One of Chad’s hens, Ethel or Lucy, is actually a rooster. They had suspected that for a couple of weeks. The name has been changed to Fred. He is not a nice rooster. Thank goodness, he doesn’t have spurs yet but he goes after Nicole every chance he gets and he pecked her leg and made it bleed the other day. Chad came out about the time it happened. Nicole told him. He grabbed Fred, put him on Addie’s trampoline, zipped the fence thing closed and said “Now . . you’re in chicken time out!”
Nicole said she was laughing . . chicken time out!
Fred has to go to a new home this weekend . . though knowing Chad, he may end up in a pot of gumbo.

I have a “chicken” that turned out to be a rooster…a roster with an attitude. My husband is afraid of him. I have picked him up by his feet, held him upside down then cradled him in my arms on his back. After doing that 3 times he no longer comes after me. Husband is still fair game however. The rooster is staying as he is so good to his girls, always on the lookout for predetors (We have many here as it’s is very rural). Love the trampoline idea tho…lol

What a hoot! I hope the bite was not too bad. I think gumbo sounds good, but don’t tell Addie!
Susan Nixon says
Hilarious! Yes, he sounds like gumbo meat to me!

First thing I thought of was my grandmother would have rung his neck and made chicken and dumplings.
