I read the post "Rooster Attack, need advice" and discovered a bunch of wisdom about how to deal with aggressive birds. Biochick posted...I set him up the first day, I carried the bottle under my arm kind of hidden(I want him to think it comes from me not the bottle). When he got to close I let him have it in the face from under my arm. I had it on stream and when he backed off so did I. He really didn't like it and left me alone for a few days. Now every couple of days I arm myself with my spray bottle and test him. I use the bottle lightly because I don't want him to think this is just water and I'm not scared. So far this has worked for me. I, especially, liked this idea. This works, because it is random, discreet, repeated and reinforced. I use it to train my pooches to stay out of the kitchen when I'm cooking. They believe my arm will "spit" at them if they enter the kitchen while I'm there. We have aggressive wild turkey issues. To prevent attacks and haze the aggressive birds, I use and recommend carrying a small, inexpensive travel-size umbrella. The collapsible kind that will fit into your pocket. As an aggressive bird approaches, I rapidly pop the umbrella open in their direction, which scares the bajeezus out of them. I pop it repeatedly and walk toward them. Occasionally, one will still attack. In this case, the umbrella serves as a shield for you and the bird targets the umbrella, instead of you. Get an old worn out or used umbrella, because it will get tattered by all the activity. A bunch of good ideas were presented in that post, to name a few: Grabbing and holding while disturbing its comb and feathers, water sprayers, plastic rakes (I like the rake instead of the broom, because it has a larger surface area and a better design for safely pinning the offending bird to the ground), and a host of others. Are there any other solutions (short of culling) for hazing aggressive birds not mentioned here?
