We have a pretty Rhode Island Red cockerel which we hatched and raised. He used to fall asleep on your lap when he was a chick. Recently however, he has become a tad aggressive, but mainly on my Green pair of wellingtons which I wear when I got out to feed the hens. I'll turn my back to him or walk past him and he will attack the Wellingtons, and have a face off with them. Before I have ignored it but now it is becoming a regular occurrence. He has previously jumped up at my mums back and had jumped up at my legs which does hurt as he is very heavy! We have to use a broom to keep him at a distance from us. He also goes though a stage of attacking the broom, when I am not wearing those wellingtons. Can anyone recommend any solutions to calm him down and stop him attacking. I have an 8 year old brother and our cockerel has huge Spurs and the last thing I want is for him to get hurt.
