Giving as good as I get.....

I just wanted to illustrate that sometimes humans win over aggressive cockerels ( see previous post)
And sometimes the cockerels win
Forgive the repeat blogs from 2013 but they kind of illustrate my point

" f*ck......I've Just Killed Bogbrush!"

Sometimes you just don't think when faced with a " difficult" situation
You just react.
And that does not always work out the way you would wish.

This evening, just as I was encouraging the tiny Useless little buggers into their coop
Bogbrush the aggressive silkie cockerel
Hurtled forward and started to kick the shit out of the tiny male bantam right in front of me.
Without a thought I swung the tin feed bowl I was holding and clacked Bogbrush smartly on the head with it to teach him a lesson in manners
And unfortunately this was the result


RIP Bogbrush
Life is hard sometimes

When you are a bully
There is always someone bigger than you

  3. Well I hope one of my friends would do the same if you tried to put me on my back and pop my appendage out.

    I think you got off lightly.

  10. As you say all's fair in cockerel world, some you win and some you lose. The best defence against any cockerel is to love them to bits from the minute they hatch and then remind them with a forcible cuddle if they decide to bite/attack the hand that feeds them.

    Or if your cockerel only attacks your husband, sit back, laugh and take photos for your Blog (well that's what I do) ;-)

  12. Ouch, that looks painful .... I sympathise, last year I got my ass thoroughly kicked by an aggressive goose called Archie who thought that I was too close his "mate" AKA my friend Penny (a human) and in order to get me to go away, he decided it would be a good idea to grab hold of the back of my leg in his beak while bashing me with his wings and kicking me with his feet, I was black and blue for days.

  17. Talk about biting the hand that feeds. You need some anger management on the field.

  18. Do so want to be your neighbor. I am going to have to get my home computer working better so I can keep up with your adventures for the two weeks I will be off work over the Holidays. Or else you are not allowed to do anything exciting while I am in the internet deadzone. ;)

  23. Reminds me of a story that my hubby brought home about a fellow worker of his and so the story goes.....this poor chap was approx. 16 yrs old and was helping his father on the family farm and running cows/calves through the hoof trimming chute. There was one bovine that took exception to being restrained in the chute and promptly wriggled and forcefully got one hind leg out of the confines of the chute. The young man (nickname is Farmer) proceeded to attempt to restrain the freed leg, when the leg jerked free and viciously kicked him in the scrotum. (Pausing here for all the groans I know are being vocalized) .........Off to the ER for some stitches for young Farmer, 40 of them were inserted without benefit of have a local pain killer (I was told that they are unable to numb that portion of the male anatomy- to which I replied "Totally makes sense")
    Fast forward several years and this same man is doing cement work on a side walk with a chute from the truck pouring just behind his back, the truck jumped into gear without warning and the chute flipped up and the grab hook at the end of this chute grabbed Farmer's scrotum and ripped it so badly that both testicles fell out!!!! (bigger pause for more moaning............)
    60!!! yes, I said 60 stitches later the Doctor said to Farmer, "I don't think I've ever had anyone bend the handles on my metal examination table prior to today"
    And yes, this man has 3 children and has no permanent damage. Seems a bit to me like he should stay away anything that is described as a "chute"!!!! True story too, because there's no way you can make that crap up.
