Our 16 week old welsummer roo attacked our 6 year old tonight, chasing after her jumping up and trying to scratch her. He probably jumped on her 5 or 6 times as she was trying to get away. She was playing with the hens at the time. my husband whacked him with a paper grocery bag (full of lettuce for the chickens!) to get him off her then the roo started going after my DH. He has been doing this kind of thing a lot lately, jumping up on people and we want to get it to stop. I have read to carry them around under your arm etc. but we can't catch him and chasing him around and hitting him is not going to help. I don't think he is a bad guy really, I didn't handle him as a chick because I was told it would make them more aggressive but I think I should have. I don't have a problem picking up the other chickens. WHAT SHOULD WE DO NOW AND HOW DO WE CATCH HIM??? Please help, I think underneath he is a nice guy and we don't want to get rid of him but he can't hurt the kids. We also have a 4 year old and this is "his" rooster. He would be very upset if Doodle had to go but Mom would be very upset if rooster hurt anyone. Should I try to befriend him now, catch him unawares? How to get him to lay off the kids?
