Poor Foghorn

My big ol' rooster,
thought he was cock of the walk...
Until....Red, my hen 
ended it all today with 
a flogging and loud squawk!..

    Hilarious! Good for the Lady in Red! I guess she wasn't in the mood?... We raised chickens when I was a youngster and I once asked my dad, 'Why is that rooster trying to hurt that other chicken?' to which my dad replied. 'We'll talk about that when you're a little older'...

    I grew up with birds, parakeets and doves, but I've seen chickens in action. You've got it down perfectly... jack
