Has anyone ever had a rooster or a chicken that hated the shoes they wear? I got a Welsummer rooster from spatcher a week ago and he has had a little bit of an attitude. I've been working with him and he has seemed to be getting better, until this afternoon. I usually just wear a pair of my crocs when I go out into the run or the coop because they are so easy to get on and back off. Well today I had just gotten back from town and went out into the run to fill the waterer and Brutus immediately homed in on my tennis shoes that I had on. He then looked up and me and came after me! I couldn't believe it! I kept shooing him back and then he'd come right back after me until I left the run. I came inside and sat down to think about why he had regressed and realized that every time I enter the coop or the run he looks at my shoes. Most of the time I'm wearing my crocs, not tennis shoes. I guess he doesn't mind my crocs, but he sure doesn't like the tennis shoes! Silly 'ole rooster!
