Cocks fighting – sigh

To my annoyance, the Cocks are fighting each other now. The former top Cock, the little torpedoe-like Dorking is all bloody on account of his huge comb being attacked by the other major Cock, the Jersey Giant. The littlest one mostly keeps out of it.

I’m somewhat divided on what to do here. Everyone I’ve read says that Cocks will fight to determine rank, so this is a natural occurrence. I’m inclined to let them settle it among themselves who is going to be on top. If it gets really bad I may kill the one so it doesn’t suffer any more.

Currently it is hiding under the nest boxes where the other Cocks don’t come after it. It still roosts with the rest @ night.

Fortunately the chicken Yard is away from the road, so it is not like villainous people can incite the birds, like at a “Cock fight”. Fortunately, I think those have become rare around here, which is good in general.
