CAPTURE THE FLAG
Here is Rooster Chicklet, in charge of the flock. Notice his proud tail feather, flying like a beautiful flag unfurled. You can see that the tail feather balances him and makes him walk proud.
Oops, what is this? It appears to be a tail feather missing a rooster. Something seems to have happened among our flock that caused proud Chicklet to lose his banner of rule.
Introducing "Little Joe", Chicklet's nephew who is only six-months-old. As you can see, Little Joe is already as big, if not slightly bigger, than his uncle. You will also notice that Chicklet's tail feather is missing and his shoulders are slumped in shame. It appears they had a lively game of "capture the flag" and Chicklet lost. It wasn't very fair because Little Joe doesn't even have a tail feather yet. He does, however, have a healthy set of spurs. It seems he just might know how to use them.
And the rooster wars continue...
