Since we had 3 chickens killed by the family of raccoons last week, we have been locking up all 9 chickens in the coop and setting the coon trap every night. All have been safe so far so good. We have 5 roos and 4 hens left and all are about 4 months old. For the past 2 mornings, my youngest son (11 years old) and I have been releasing the chickens and feeding them alone. There is one rooster that has suddenly gotten really aggressive towards the two of us and our rubber boots. Yesterday, he pecked by son's hand (drew blood) and today he attacked my boot and flew up on the top of the fence (over my head) and was all fluffed up like he was going to fight me. I haven't gotten to talk to my husband about this yet, but I'm pretty sure he will say that rooster will soon be dinner. What do yall think? Is he just being more protective since the coons attacked last week? How do we get him to settle down and be more friendly?
