I know people are quick to say just get rid of a rooster if they show aggression but I am wondering since my roosters only 6 months if it is just him testing out new raging hormones and it will calm down after the first year/spring or if this is a true sign of an aggressive bird? I have a rooster who has been the sweetest kindest bird out of my whole flock. He always lets my husband and I pick him up and hold him, he calls to me when I come home or if I'm close to the coop and I've never had any aggression shown. I've always tryed to show him I'm boss and never let him eat first when I feed them, or let him mount the hens in front of me. He'd just walk away if I walked towards him. But last week I brought my son in with me to the run. I already knew from reading posts to watch him and I've trained my son with them since they were day old chicks, so this was not a new thing. I could tell right away rooster was upety and not liking his presence that day and sure enough tryed to attack him. Didn't get to him before I yelled and screamed at the rooster and kicked him out of the way. I sent my son out of the run and proceeded to chase that rooster all over the place. I was trying to grab him and was gonna dunk his head in water and teach him a lesson but I could NOT catch him! I tryed later in day and chased him around again but to no avale. Since then I have not been able to pick him up and every time I enter the coop he runs around me trying to get behind me and hasn't full on attacked but I know he's thinking about it! I have heard that the first year/spring with roosters is high hormones and his feet are super bright red so I know they are raging! My question is do I chalk this up to raging hormones and will he calm back down after spring to the nice sweet chicken I had before or is this going to be what he's like from now on?
