Unfortunately, we got another rooster as a chick 2 years ago [we had paid for all females, so we were irritated, but unwilling to eat him. Yet.] The new rooster is Nutmeg. This year, Nutmeg has overturned the status quo and poor Bob has been ousted from the flock. Either that or fight to the death. Not nice options.
It irritates Nutmeg to see Bob free, and quite honestly, I'm OK with that.
They'll nap in there for a while and then come out and scratch around somewhere else.
Bob's feathers. So gorgeous.
I could look at him all day long.
