Our Man is Good for Something . . .
Captain, our rooster, has been proving his worth. The other day the hens were free ranging when they suddenly started scuttling towards the coop, and Captain began making the most awful noise I have heard him make so far - and believe me he makes a lot of noises! It sounded kind of like this: Bock, Bock, Bock, Bock, BABOCK! When Madi and I investigated we found a . . . CAT . . . snooping around on the other side of the fence. Captain stayed there until his girls were safely back in the coop before he made a run for it. We were very impressed. I have also seen him "call" them when he finds something yummy to eat.
