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!.. ©Donna Jones 11-11-2013

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

LOL! I want to watch Looney Toons now!!! Chicken Hawk wins! That said, Marvin the Martian & Road Runner wins all of my heart. But, that's another topic for another day. =) Nicely done!
