This is Dirty White Boy and Little Red fighting during chores a couple of days ago.
It went on and on. DWB was the third place rooster behind Little Red and Big Red. But I guess he wanted to change positions. I had assumed he would win this fight as he is bigger. But Little Red definitely battled.
It is so odd because they grew up together and were friends not that long ago, but I guess the hormones kicked in.
Here is Little Red after this fight. He looks worse because he is wet from the rain. But it was clear he had lost.
But then later in the morning I saw them fighting through a fence panel. Just crazy!
Here is Little Red this morning. It is hard to see with the shadows, but his comb is really damaged. He definitely lost so will not have nearly as many hens as the top two roosters. But as long as he stops fighting he will have a nice rooster life here despite that.
In other farm news, the chicks are all doing quite well. They are starting to develop their tails and wings which is fun to see. Of the 4 hay loft chicks, 2 appear to be roosters and two appear to be hens (1 brown and 1 black for each gender).
Today was pasture rotation day, and the sheep looked mighty fine on their fresh grass.
Finally, the obligatory Ryeleigh photo. This time she is checking out the bee hive table.
Happy Mothers Day to all of the mothers out there, especially mine!!!
