We added a young rooster to our seven-hen flock several months ago. He was about a month younger than the girls, and they picked on him non-stop. Just in the past 2 months or so, he has worked his way up in the pecking order. He is now much larger than my large hens, and clumsily starting to have his way with them. I posted on here before because he was so clumsy that he injured one of my hens. Just in the past week or so he has started pecking at me every time I come in the coop to check on food and water. The first few times were quick little pokes, which I scolded him for, but lately he has gotten more brazen and started poking hard at my legs or ankles. Yesterday he jumped up and kicked my ankle with both feet (I thinkI couldn't really see as he snuck up behind me). Is there any way to train him to calm down? I took a snow brush in yesterday to fend him off, and I think just the sight of it kept him away, but I don't think that will last. I seriously thought about sending him to the auction when he injured my hen, but they all seem to have calmed down and are getting along. The girls don't pick on him anymore, they just kind of accept him. I know how to train a dog, and even a cat, but am clueless about how to work with a roo!
