This is Zorro my Silkie rooster. He's such a handsome boy. I've raised him since he was one day old. He has always been sweet and gentle to our family and to his five hens. He is protective of them and has just been a joy to have around. He and my five hens are two years old and we recently let them hatch out their eggs. He has stayed with the girls and has watched over them while they incubated and raised their chicks. The chicks are two months old now and since the chicks have been roaming around more on our farm, Zorro has gotten aggressive. He pecks our shoes and pulls at our pant legs with his beak. He also jumps in the air and claws at us with his feet. We love him dearly but recently he bit our son's face and left a three inch scar on him. Then he attacked our Jumbo Peking ducks, leaving one of them bloodied on the back of her neck and back. When I went to get my son off the school bus one afternoon, Zorro charged at me down the driveway and attacked me. I assume he is just being very territorial and with all the chicks he had, he may be feeling overwhelmed. I am at a loss as to what to do. He is a good father to his chicks and a good leader for the hens, but I don't like it that he's turned on us. I don't want the others to start turning on us either. So far though, it is just him with the attitude problem. Is this normal? Is there anything we could do to teach him that we are not a threat? Will he ever go back to being my sweet little guy again?
