I have discovered the best defense re: fending off Cocky Rocky is the garden hose! Picture this--me armed with the garden hose, spray set to "jet," Rocky running at me in full battle-stance mode. Aim, fire, shoot! One rooster on his a## as the stream of water hits him. Picture me armed with the garden hose, Rocky under the deck minding his hens...aim, fire, SHOOT! Now all I have to do is pick up the garden hose and Rocky beats a hasty retreat under the branches of the trees or the deck...who knew water could be such an effective weapon!!! Ha-ha, Rocky, I have more tricks up my sleeve than you do!!!! Besides, he needs a bath...

A squirt gun didn't work (nor did throwing a very nice glass of red wine on him--that's all I had at the time), but the garden hose--that works!

The Vet would probably be impressed by the way we have rotated the joint on the "gimpy" chick (the Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering figured that out)--vet wrap, gauze, and then a tiny pebble from Lake of the Woods--I bring sand and pebbles back every August--my most favorite place to go--(pic is the view out the window from the cabin in the morning) more vet wrap to place the pebble in the right place on the foot so the chick has to bear weight on it. Most peope would've culled this chick...we're softies so we're trying to fix it. The standard methods for fixing a splay foot didn't work because the joint is where it splays...the pebble seems to be working. I check the foot several times/day for swelling and temperature. So far, so good. Little Pebbles is using it. Probably doesn't like the added weight....

I personaly think you would look good in a firefighter's outfit and using their hose. Can you imagine the blast you could give Rocky then?

If he ever decides to ignore your hose, call the fire department and have them give him a blast with their hose. He will get instant flying lessons.

Hmmm...a purple firefighter's outfit...I actually have one of those hoses--it came with a rescue dog as the poor dog's leash! Rocky might not fly after a blast from one of those--but I can guarantee you he would go arse-over-teakettle more than once!!! Ha-ha!
