    honestly, if he's being that mean and coming after you, time for chicken and dumplings and get a new roo. We had some mean birds and it was just enough when others started getting injured and even killed by the mean birds. We have only 1 roo and he's a sweet heart. If he were to turn mean, into the stock pot.

    Why is your face near a rooster? chickens peck at anything they want to know about. Your eyebrow looks like a feather, your nose may have been red or blotchy. They also think toes look like grubs or worms and freckles, moles and hair might be food. Chickens are very accurate and fast. So to me, if he had wanted to peck your eye, he would have made his mark. If he is not running at you and kicking you, I am not sure he is truly aggressive. If you are bending over the rooster like say, filling the feeder, he may just be standing his ground or feeling as though you are an aerial predator in that moment. I guess it's up to you to decide....

    He doesnt run after me but her goes around me lime ne would to a chicken
    it is especially in the morning when hes being really mean
    when he goes out he goes around me so I keep a brush near me
    and he even pecks the brush in a biting way


    And their is no way he is going to a cooking pot he may be
    A little aggressive but doesnt mean hes a reallly bad boy
    He is the cutes and sweetest rooster and loves to cuddle


    Anyways thank you soooooooo much for helping me

    Glad to help save a roo! Hens do similar curiosity pecking and it is accepted as such. When a roo does it, he gets labeled aggressive.Double standard, not fair! There would be no cuddling of an aggressive rooster, he'd be too busy trying kick the heck out of you! I hope your roo continues to behave and have a nice, respectful relationship with you!
