I have one rooster and two hens, they are all pretty much tame and my two boys pick up the hens and cuddle them all the time but "Robert" the rooster is way too fast for them.
The problem I have is my daughter (5yrs), everytime she goes outside to play and Robert is in the backyard he chases her, even all the way in the house and up the stairs to her bedroom, he did catch her once and peck her.... Now she refuses to go outside when he is out.
My daughter had a little girl friend over last week to play and Robert chased her as well, this little girl didnt show any fear and even had her back to him but he just took off after her when she ran to the swing then continued running after her after she realised he was on her heels and pecked her leg.
Is it a girl thing...... they dont do it to my boys (4yr old twins) who are a little bit more out there and scared of nothing.... although he does get a little angry if they hurt his two girls Lulu and Tiny then he goes after them but they chase him away and thats it.
Ideas on how to fix this would be great.
