Wow what a day; in one corner stood the keeper of a harem of hens, a very young and adorable rooster who crows under the name of Rufas; in the other corner the intruder, a large stroppy black cock who today has since earned himself the name “Bad Boy Biff.”
I don’t know where the hell Bad Boy Biff dropped in from, but today he turned up at the country house I am staying at and he broke into the chook pen and started laying into Rufas; gallant Rufas who proudly stood his ground and tried in vain to protect the honor of his harem.
By the time my little brother got to Rufas, he was lying motionless in a pile of chicken shit, blood running down his comb; little brother thought he was dead but Rufas had just had the living shit kicked out of him in what has to go down as one of the nastiest cock fights in history.
Unfortunately I was out at the time so unable to assist with my Veterinary skills, so little brother rushed poor Rufas to the local vet where a large gash in the side of his face was glued back together. Back at the chook house Bad Boy Biff was celebrating his victory by strutting around and hollering like a turkey. It didn’t seem right that Biff could just turn up and take over so little brother and I decided that this nasty black cock had to go.
For the past three hours I have been stalking Biff, throwing blankets, pine cones and gumboots at this incredibly confident and infuriating rooster; one thing is certain if I don’t catch him before the sun goes down tonight he’s got it coming tomorrow.
P:S: Rufas is recovering well and will hopefully fight off any infection
