This is Ricky, our handsome Roo, who we raised from little chick on all the while handling him and giving lots of love. Well, once maturity hit, Ricky of course became protective of his girls especially since spending more time in the coop during our below zero temps here in the far north. I had no problem with his occasional stance/peck on the leg expressing dominance but then twice at my face slicing my lip once and the second time giving me a black eye with a tear in the eye lid. Sooo, I had put him in a second coop we started them in, and take care of him in there. I would love to bring him back in by the girls but when I did try once since I separated them, he was on the attack with anyone, even given time. I don't trust him around the kids when they want to go see the hens, so I am looking for any suggestions anyone may have.
