You've been flogged. He's being human-aggressive. How old is this guy? I don't allow any rooster who does that to stay or breed here. Some say you can change that behavior, but I've never been able to do so. Temperament is heritable and most backyard folks don't want to have to watch their backs when out around their flocks, myself included.
