A reader had requested a picture of The Friendliest Hen in the World. So here she is with our magnificent, but evil, rooster, Hermes. Don't they make a handsome couple?
Hermes has taken to bringing all of his hens together under the shade of our patio table. It's cute, but hard to get a picture of, since they run to the people. The Shepherdess takes a bucket along when she goes near the rooster. He attacks her, so she plops the bucket on top of him, which buys her enough time to escape.
A rooster attack is no laughing matter.
