Haha he's gotten a soft "lift and toss" from my boot a few times, but he got himself pretty good the other day. I was in the coop trying to raise the waterer up a bit so it didn't get nasty, and I was squatted down with one leg jutting out behind the ramp to the nests... Well he decided he needed to kill me right then and came at me full force and ran straight into the bottom of my boot so hard he did a back flip... I laughed so hard I almost fell out of the coop!

My little zoo:

3 human children and their dad, dogs, turtle, sugar gliders, ball pythons, a mixed banty hen, and the Pullet Gang:3 RIR's, 2 Golden Nuggets, an Ameraucana, a Black Australorp, a Delaware White, and a Silver Laced Wyandotte

Since I finally figured out how to add pics, here are a few of the three I have right now. I placed an order with Ideal yesterday for a GSL, Barred Rock, and an assortment of sebrights. They will be here in late October I guess. 

 

This one is Hurricane. The smaller and passive rooster.

 

This is Sweet Pea, well, thats what the BF's daughter calls him... I can't repeat on here what I call him...

 

Then finally is Opal, our little hen

If you can't get rid of the roosters, than showing them who is the boss should help knock them down a peg. Maybe you've already seen them, but there are a couple articles in the Learning Center that might help:

Good luck!

Thanks! I found the first one the other day, but was having trouble finding anything beyond that. I'm not sure if I can catch him to try to make him submit, but I'm definitely going to try!
