Not the smartest bird on the farm!

One of our roosters isnt very bright. He is definitely a ‘bird brain’. This particular chicken likes to hang with our newest hens. He tries to rule them but they wont let him, so he kinda hangs back, pushes his chest out, ruffles his feathers and squeaks out a cock-a-doodle-doooo trying to impress. Usually the three hens will look up and give him the ‘dont even think about it’ glare! Well, the other day, chad went outside to let the girls back in their special area. Most times the rooster follows them in hoping for some love and affection. Chad opened the gate, the girls strutted in and the mighty rooster went back and forth in front of the opening, confused about how to get in! He was all upset, running from one end to the other…in front of the wide open gate of course! The girls stood there along with Chad watching this ‘not the brightest bulb in the box’ running in front of the gate trying to get in! The hens looked at each other, Super Farmer looked at them, they up at him, and shook their heads in disbelief as the flustered rooster ran back and forth, back and forth with a path wide open to the other chickens in front of him! After a few minutes of mr ding bat running around dazed and confused, the girls got bored and went back to pecking bugs. Chad shut the gate and went back inside the house, and the rooster…he spent the next hour trying to figure out how to impress the girls on the other side of the fence because he couldn’t get in, which of course didn’t work!
