LeeAnn Dunnington of Indiana took an amazing photo of her rooster, Kernal, defending his flock from a hawk flying down to attack. It's published on page 53 of the current, June/July issue of Backyard Poultry magazine.
LeeAnn writes amusingly about Kernal's flock management, apparently modeled on Foghorn Leghorn. Roosters can be buffoons, but their courage and solicitous care for their flock can't be doubted. They set another high standard of courtly behavior for us!
Thanks, LeeAnn, for sharing your story and photos with us.
