Gibson and the New Rooster

Unlike sheep, that roo has no respect for Gibson's stare. Gibson will never take the decisive action which would command the roo's respect but that is ok considering what his real job is.

What a beautiful rooster! What breed is he?

He and Gibson seem pretty evenly matched. :)

Um, I think the bird is herding Gibson.

Ballsy little bird.

Gah! Roosters! I was totally fine collecting eggs until the big one decided he didn't like me much and kept attacking me. They jump pretty darn high too, we eventually took him for a drive, heh, since he even jumped at the farmer and they had lots of little kids around.

Do Ameraucana's come in black as well? They were pretty convinced that's what he was. They had a greenish sheen to their feathers.

too funny. bossy rooster looks to be safe on your farm. my husband took on a springer spaniel years back (his fav breed of dog). the dog was a gift, actually a hunting flunkie with a "get your own damn bird" attitude. First day here the dog proudly presented Howard with his (dead) fav chicken, dropped it at his feet, so proud! no chickens here since that date. dog is now dead so time to reconsider. you can never assume how one animal will react to another on a farm, they all fail to read the rule books.

Your roo looks a lot like our "Hagar", who we thought was a Jersey Giant! The chicks were a mixed group of Golden Cross and Ameraucanas, so maybe that's what he is after all?
Gibson does take his job seriously, even when he seems to be outmatched.

My new rooster crows at any time of day. He has no idea about just morning. So far he moves off the dogs ok but he's been raised with hens that were used to being herded back into their pen. I got straight run chicks and turns out I had a rooster.
