In the Brooder
- Dec 7, 2015
I have read a lot of posts about different rooster behaviors but I didn't see any that covered this. Does anyone else have a problem with their rooster being super attached to them? He's fine around our immediate family, but if anyone else comes over to visit and interacts with me he tries to attack them. I work from home and he watches me work all day. He comes running to see me any time I am outside (which is admittedly adorable with his fluffy feathery legs). No one else in my family can pick him up or touch him unless he's in the coop at night but he will let me pick him up anytime. Some of the hens are being transitioned in the next few weeks into the coop full time and he's done well with them, but even when they're getting some time outside to acclimate to the weather he will still spend most of his time watching me. I love how gentle and calm he has been with the hens and I do love that he's my buddy and all, but I'm not thrilled at him attacking anyone who is unfamiliar and interacts with me.
