The Eagles Laid Eggs...

So Picture This...

170 pound dog.  One Barred Rock Rooster.

The rooster takes off after the dog for some reason, chasing him across the yard.  The dog is oblivious to being followed.

Rooster viciously attacks said 170 pound dog's back end.  Dog is shocked, turns, growls, and practically devours back end of chicken in one snap of his jaws.

Of course, Troy gets yelled at and he drops stupid rooster.  Stupid rooster gets yelled at too.

Then Troy got loves and stuff, cuz I woulda attacked back too!!!

Should be interesting to see how long Burt lasts around here.  Troy's been giving him wide berth and I'm afraid Burt's going to be emboldened.  Hmmm.  We shall see....

Here on the Farm...

The honeybees got bee pollen today.  Avalon is still doing well.  A few even flew around and protested my invasion of their winter home!  But I think all is well and despite feeling like Godzilla, I feel good about getting in there and getting food to them.  They are pretty high up in the hive so they might be running low on food.  Now they are buzzing away...a bit annoyed with me and the cold.  Even though it is about 50 degrees, they want to be close to 90 right about now!

Burt ventured away from the coop today and started exploring the yard.  He even had a bit of a run in with Aria...don't mess with Big Momma!

We've got our first woodpecker at the suet.  And I learned the call of the little downy woodpecker this afternoon.  Guess we never get too old to learn new stuff.

And the daffodils are up.  Might be time to start planting seeds.  Looking like the Groundhog might not predict six more weeks of winter!  We shall see!!
