Beekissed's Rooster Speak

This is a great article! :goodpost:
gave me something new to try to a young rooster that wasn't seeming to get it, he's finally quit challenging me as he was about ready to get sent to freezer camp due to attitude.

Very interesting read. In my years of chicken keeping, I've had one mean rooster. One. And he's part of last year's batch. I found (am finding?) it hard to deal with or even wrap my head around. Funny how new things can do that to you!

I will get a flag tomorrow and try this with him. He's a big golden Wyandotte, so he packs a bit of a punch (kick?), but a little boot, or six, and some aggressive walking finally gets him retreating.

Thank you for writing this article. I will try and remember to update, for reference.
I have always been afraid of roosters, and since our "hen" started to crow, I have been looking for a way to live peaceful with him. He had just start challenging me so I was looking for some idea or something try. This is worth the read and will give it a try.

I think this article is a good guideline for people trying to manage an already aggressive cockerel/rooster, and for those who want to train them from the start.
What a great article, Beekissed! I look forward to using your info to show my flock my position. Carrying a rooster around never made sense to me but your info really seems to "Speak" the language. Thanks :clap
