Well, I have tried everything with this rooster. He has been attacking me for MONTHS, and for a while I've been able to keep him in check by carrying him around under my arm for a few minutes once a week or so. Our peace treaty came to a grinding halt yesterday when I was taking treats out to the white faced black Spanish pen, and stupid Rico the Rooster came up behind me out of nowhere and WHAPPP!!! He flogged my leg, kicked me, and spurred me! My whole left knee is still swollen almost 24 hours later, and this morning it's purple & you can see where his spur penetrated the skin -- it broke the skin & I cleaned it out right away to keep it from getting infected. The inside of my knee hurts, and you can see where it's all swollen & is about 1-1/4 times the size of my other knee. Hurts when I walk. He has been locked up in a small black cage by himself, right in the middle of the yard (in the shade... I ain't THAT cruel), and he's right where all his hens and the OTHER ROOSTERS can see him. I went to give him food and water this morning & he attacked my hand. He is likely going to be dispatched in the next day or so. We have too many sweet, good-natured roosters in our flock to put up with this crap.
