    Hello fellow poltry lovers,
    I have a small flock of leghorns with 5 hens & 1 rooster all about 9 months old. They live in a chicken tractor, but occassionally if my wife (Mellissa), or I, are at home we let them out to forage. My problem is with the rooster. He's getting pretty cocky. When my wife is in the yard he doesn't bother her, but if I am outside he wants to fight. His spurs are getting well developed and he's starting to draw blood even through my bluejeans. Short of chicken soup,is there any way to stop this?

    A frind in need Ricky.
