In the Brooder
- Apr 2, 2010
I have a rooster who on occasion has tried to come after me. I have been going back after him and actually kicked at him a couple of times and he has backed off. Today, he went after someone else so I have been reading on past posts about how to deal with rooster aggression. I have no interest in making him soup... one, because I am a vegetarian and two, because I just believe there has to be a better way. Some of the posts have suggested catching him and holding him for awhile... but how do you catch him??? It seems that I would be chasing him all over. Any suggestions or other thoughts on this topic?? I guess I should also get a good look at his spurs and deal with them. I read on here that someone microwaved potatoes and put them on the spur for 5 minutes, them pulled them off with pliers. Does that really work???? I love having him around and need to stop this behavior.
