he was the second of our dominant roosters
he was the most dominant just ask every one that confronted him

when we first started we wanted hens to eat the bugs and insects on our property
and to furnish us with organic truly free range eggs
we bought 10 "hens" from a local seller of chickens
as usual two died or was killed by our dogs-part of the cycle of life

one day my nurse from a previous clinic i worked at came by to visit
she brought her 5 year old grandson with her to visit
she stayed inside the house visiting with us while
the 5 year old grandson played outside and was all over our property

well he decided to go visit the chicken coop and the chickens
at that time we let them run loose in the yard around our house
(now they only run loose around our barn and pastures)

when he decided he would hold the chicken(he has animals at home and is
use to handling them) the chicken fluffed up its neck, jumped in the air with
its claws out and the little nobs on back of leg out.
the chicken then attacked the grandson with full force

he came screaming across the one acre yard with the chicken after him
he stayed inside the rest of the day
he refused to visit us again after that

this was when we realized that the chicken was a rooster
our son told us we should name him after the rooster on the seinfold episode where
kramer cared for the fighting rooster named little larry

so began the legend of larry the rooster
