I have my coop up by my deck, which is surrounded by a low 3 foot fence. If there is food outside the fence, will they bother working to get within the fence and...

    My Rooster, who is almost 2 that I hatched and raised myself, attacks EVERYONE except me. If anyone comes near me when I’m outside with them, he goes at them instantly.
