My turkeys will literally fly at my face if I have meal worms. LOL I have gotten them to let me pet them while they eat, and if i'm REALLY lucky, they'll even let me set them on my lap and pet them. I've won over the ducks, I've got my silkies who are still inside in a brooder trained to do tricks on command. (they jump on command, come on command, and we'll be teaching them how to identify shapes on command, as that's one of the tricks to this dog training course my husband wants to go through, is week #1, they use chickens to train people how to train using positive reinforcement only, because chickens don't do negative reinforcement, and it's a useful tool for dog training for tracking and search and rescue.) hubby's too cheap to go to their academy, but he's been watching videos, and trying to teach himself their techniques... so now he appreciates us having all these chickens.

 

this particular rooster, won't even come to me with treats, and I haven't had time to corner or chase him around and I don't want to traumatize him.... :( 

great news on the ducks!!!  I see, yes if he is that skeered, maybe let him be or he may turn mean, what do I know lol  I only ever had one silky that was mean.  others come to me

Why does he hate me so much? He used to like us sad.png

If I've got a roo that doesn't like me, I respect his space and leave him be except for occasional louse and weight checks. I've prevented one, maybe two from turning bad that way... He was starting to posture when I came near him, so I completely dropped all contact for a few weeks. He's good now. yesss.gif

The voices in my head are fighting again.

 

My imaginary friend is running with scissors, and one of my personalities wandered off.

 

I don't like to think before I speak. I like to be just as surprised as everyone else about what comes out my mouth.

 

Sometimes even I am afraid of the things my mind comes up with.

I definitely respect their space. Mine doesn't posture. my alpha roo WAS posturing me, so I picked him up and started carrying him around with me. Now he doesn't posture. He lets me pick him up and tolerates it. Although, the roo that's skeered of me, he did  get chased by  the other rooster away from me once he decided I was part of his flock. (or whatever his little bird brain decided on where I fit into the scheme of things.)

 

I seriously nearly get swarmed though when I have buckets of feed. LOL
