Who Rules the Pen - Blue Guy or Jeffrey?

Every morning when we all come down to our pen from the barn we are met by the chickens. Their chicken tractor is, of course, in our pen and the male person lets them out before we get there.  The chickens seem fascinated by the kids; probably because they are bigger than the kids.

Blue Guy is particularly interested in Jeffrey.

Jeffrey has been feeling his oats so when Blue Guy starts to check him out, Jeffrey tries to butt him! This happens EVERY morning.

Silly Jeffrey. He forgets that Blue Guy has spurs! 

Blue Guy has been known to charge Jeffrey but he was on his good behavior this day. Probably because the publicist was in the pen taking photos. Blue Guy tried to spur the publicist but she then "charged" Blue Guy to let him know who was boss! Now Blue Guy gives her a wide berth.

You can see how excited Jeffrey is here - he is maaaaaing away at Blue Guy.

 You can see that Blue Guy is getting ready to charge, but he doesn't.

Blue Guy eventually just walked away so I guess Jeffrey rules the pen!

I want to thank Nanny Goats In Panties for being my 100th follower. I am a proud goat to have reached that milestone after 9 months of blogging.

Tomorrow:  Wordless Wednesday


  1. Wow, I wish I would have known to try charging the roosters! I got nailed several times by ours and OMG do they leave a mark - or two! I finally just learned to stay away from them or I took the lightweight leaf rake in with me when I went into their pen.

    Jeffrey is sooo cute. Seeing all these adorable goats makes me want to start raising goats, in addition to the llamas. I'm thinking maybe a nubian dwarf or two and some Pygoras for their fiber.

  2. I have that problem with Elvis,the head rooster in the chicken yard. But.... I "asked him to stop it". Now he does not try to charge me anymore.

  3. Yea Jefferey! Great job standing your ground to the bad blue guy. Congrats on the 100th follower. Have you seen my new blog home?

  4. It is so cute and funny to see a chicken bigger than little Jeffrey!

  5. soon jeffrey will be bigger than blue guy so i guess the contest will be over. when i was young we had a really mean rooster that had us all running!!! hope your ketchup is good. i just made my first salsa from my tomatillos. not enough tomatoes for ketchup this year!

  6. Go Jeffrey! You show Blue Guy you can stand your ground.

    Those pictures are good!

    Have a great day.

  7. Yay Jeffrey!

    Personally, I think a video of the publicist charging Blue Guy would be a pretty funny site... Just sayin.

  8. Jeffrey is a tough little guy, that rooster would scare me if I was that little, heck I'm scared of him now. Congrats on the 100th follower and what a great one in NGIP!

  9. I agree with Daily Cute. I want to see the publicist charging Blue Guy. Jeffrey is so cute, standing up for himself even though he is the little guy.

  10. I didn't realize that the chickens were that large! Goodness!

  11. Do you think that Blue Guy realizes that they are babies? I wonder.

    Congrats on the 100th follower!!

  12. I never knew chickens got that big either! Great pictures!

  13. Blue Guy is really big but it's so cute that Jeffrey isn't intimidated at all. What a fun encounter and we're glad the Blue Guy didn't charge or anything!

  14. Jeffrey's so cute, I can't stand it!

    And this must be my day for milestones. Somebody just blogged that I was a milestone follower for them as well. So thanks for the mention!


Maaaaaa away....
