Cock fight

Our handsome but silly rooster, Russell 'fighting around the world' Crowe, has been living up to his namesake's reputation. Yesterday we heard him crowing from the neighbour's place across the road. Now, our neighbour has a white and grey cockerel so large that when we first moved here and saw him at a distance we thought it was a turkey. So our Russell has decided to go over and take him on. When we went over to check up on him, the males were facing each other, heads down and ruffled feathers standing up around the neck, jumping and kicking at each other. Great. Luckily no-one seems to have sustained injuries, and this morning Russell headed straight back over the road to start another fight. I'll have to keep him locked in if it becomes a problem.

P.S. You should watch the South Park trailer at the link above. You really should.
P.P.S. Here's a short video of Russell doing what he does best.
