Okay, last Thursday (I think) we got our first egg from one of our 3 Plymouth BRs. We have 3 hens, 1 rooster, all housed together. Saturday we left to go on Vacation. We had someone looking after the chickens and goats. He went in to get 2 eggs one day (while the hens and roo were free ranging). Later that afternoon, he went up to change their water and the Roo tried to attack him! Feathers all puffed out, tried to get his legs. Ever since then he takes a stick with him when he goes up there, but EVERY TIME he turns his back to the rooster, the rooster tries to attack him again. He would NEVER hit an animal, but he just shows him the stick and the rooster backs off. He swears it didn't happen until the day he took those eggs out. IS this normal? Then today, we get back from vacation. They are all free ranging.. and the Roo runs probably fifty feet to my three year old daughter, jumps ON her.. and scratches the crap out of her.. Then tried to get my husband for freeing him off my daughter. They were all SOOO sweet before. (we could all pick them up and hold them no problem) even my three year old. Anyone know what could have caused this, and how to fix it?
