Sunny Jim the cockerel is becoming very proprietorial about the ladies. Although at the moment the 'Wing Commander' still has the upper hand, or should I say wing, when it comes to who is in charge.
They are both very good natured as cockerels go. But I suspect that when Sunny Jim realises he is younger, fitter, and stronger, he will be the big man around here.
Until this morning I had never seen any sign of aggression from Sunny Jim, so I was surprised at his violent reaction to a wild pheasant who had come to help himself to some of the hens food.
The poor pheasant tried to escape, but could'n't get back through the wire fence. What a carry on!
Between us there was a lot of shouting, barking, clucking, and squawking, but eventually after reasoning with everyone, I was able to calm the situation.
Me, well I was an emotional, and exhausted wreck! So I went and had a lie down to recover.
Bonnie the cat, was eating her breakfast at the time this happened, and was not involved in the fracas. Which was very fortuitous for the pheasant!
