    Rooster keeps pecking me.

    We now carry an umbrella around and my rooster respects it. But will get rid of him in the winter. No way my umbrella will fit in the hen house!🤣 It's too bad as he is a terrific rooster with his hens and very beautiful.

    Rooster keeps pecking me.

    I have a 6month Barred Rock rooster that has turned aggressive. We carry an umbrella around and he keeps his distance. I am only keeping him around because he is a good rooster for his 9 hens. If I decide to overwinter the chickens then he is history. Can't imagine going in that small...

    My almost 5 month BR rooster has started doing the same! I have had him and 9 hens at 5 weeks of age. He was no problem but in the last 2 weeks he has gone after my husband and drawn blood.

    Roosting

    At what age do chickens start to roost? My almost 7 week olds still cluster in a corner on the ground together even though there are roosts available.

    Barred Plymouth Rock - slow to feather or a rooster?

    So glad i found this forum!

    It's been years since I have had chickens. I resurrected our old chicken coop in anticipation of chickens. Kind of wanted ready to lay hens but Freys was sold out. Apparently with covid-19 everyone and their neighbors are doing chickens this year! I work at horse jumping shows in Ontario Canada...
