Our rooster just started acting strange around our 5 year old. He walks back and forth alone the fence of their pen whenever our son is around it. It all started when he tried to pick the rooster up, a couple of weeks ago. I could tell the rooster wasn't happy so I told him to leave the rooster alone. I'm thinking the rooster might have seen my son as a threat?? And of course our son is very loud sometimes when he is near the pen, could this be the reason the rooster is acting this way? The rooster has never showed any aggression before.... I'd hate to have to let him go but if that's what's necessary I will.
Also our rooster just turned a year old. Not sure if age has anything to do with it... This is our first time keeping a rooster, so I am kinda new to how they react to different things.
