    Okay back in the spring i bought a really nice OEGB rooster, like champion bred and i believe he can do really well at shows. BUT we have one tiny problem, he was a year and a half old when i got him and doesn't really like to be handled that much. I handle him every day but i find that even though i do there are times when he goes to defense mode. There is a show in two weeks i really want to bring him to. SO what can i do to help get him to be more tolerable?

    I would give him treats, try giving him crickets, something he will love. I know my chickens only love me because I feed them. [​IMG] It's no secret. lol
