My best advice to you now? document every single interaction - if you come to them as an "emotional young lady" they will treat you like that... if you come to them with written log/journal of the interactions and what has occured between you two, they will see you as someone to be taken seriously. Be factual, state what was said.. try to leave emotion out of it.
From knowing people who have had problems like this, journaling is a must. Talk to a the law to make sure of your rights since you have been threatened.

I'd also invest in some electric fencing between the property and get a nice, big GP or Anatolian LGD to guard your sheep and your roosters.
Your land, your stuff, your life. It doesn't sound like this is a person who cares about "nice" and you really can't deal with those kind except ignore them as best you can and keep the moments of direct exposure to a minimum.
One of the people I know who had this problem built a big block wall a foot on his property and painted it. One thing led to another and the police beat him up for painting his fence. He did nothing wrong. The neighbor dispute was bad. He also put pigs on that side of his property, 4hpigs , well cared fore pigs who won at the fair. Some people just don't like neighbors.
Make sure that you have all the info you need for things that might happen in the future. This man has no desire for peace. Keep the Roosters if you want. If it isn't the roosters it will be something else.
If you plant the corn, make sure he doesn't spray it.
