    My sweet, beautiful, yard candy Silkie cross rooster is getting to be a bad boy. The only chicken that humble's him is my Auntie (Barred Rock).

    I saw him following me around in a "sneaky" sort of way with his wings down. It's almost as if he thought I was a hen. His side was drooping down and pointing at me. He found some food and started calling me to dinner. [​IMG]

    He also is breeding my small hen all the time, but he's not that big.

    Adjust his attitude before his behavior escalates. He's a beauty.

    Thank you! He's not that bad. I can see him getting worse though.

    My neighbors rooster does the same thing to her as if he thinks shes going to bother his hens. Hes never attacked her, but chases her son every time he goes to feed them or gather eggs. He even chases him on his motor cycle or four wheeler. they even cought him chasing the neighbors little grandson. shes wondering what to do with him. Any ideas? [​IMG]

    He just needs trained, is all. There are many threads about retraining roos to recognize humans as boss.....take your pick! You really don't have to stew a roo if you know how to train one instead.

    Sorry for mishap... Keep an eye on him because that is not good... Hoping he does not decide to flog him...
