    Ok so my bantam rooster is now 59 days old (8 weeks 4 days) and, i know it sounds weird, but he mates on my hand. [​IMG] and the stuff comes out too it's so NASTY!!!!
    He prefers the back of my hand tho.

    So we hatched out this rooster so I have been with him his whole life, he's pretty close to me i guess. this all happened on some day when i held out my hand for no reason and all of a sudden my rooster goes on my hand and basically does what any rooster would do to a chicken. He bites my finger and holds onto it and it hurts so freakin bad i have marks left from it hahaha. then the rest goes on from there.

    if you want a video just ask :)
    he's also been starting to 'dance' around older chickens just like my older rooster and a few days ago started the crowing.
    idk what to do but it's funny when my rooster does this lol. he does this to ANY hand he sees so not JUST mine. any idea what to do
