I sent you a photo of a rooster that had some thick blonde neck feathers... his body feathers were black and he was more upright & erect not so plump looking like a chicken looks.
He was one mean rooster. I have the scars to prove it. But he was king of close to 30 in his flock.
Once in a while until I began howling back at the local wolf would help herself. After a year of my howling and pouring my pee along the fence line... she left them alone.
One day blue & I on way to the barn when she walked across our pasture with her 3 grown pups. Blue froze I froze - she kept right on walking... glanced at me then looked away..
Thinking back I should have been scared out if my mind.
Really fantastic experience.
As for the second part. I had a friend with back in the 80s. Very difficult time for her. It's a very difficult problem to have.
