Sooo...yesterday my previously sweet Sebright roo tried to attack me!!! Twice before I had caught him acting in what I perceived to be a somewhat "aggressive" posturing towards me when I was handling one of the hens. The first time I had picked up what I think is his "favorite", she seems to be at the bottom of the "pecking order" and is the only one who consistently seems to listen to him . He is the only bantam, the rest are big girls, and they seem to ignore him most of the time when he tries to call them over for food or get them to go somewhere. Anyways, when I put Ruby down, he was walking towards me, sideways, scratching the ground, and looked like he had one of his wings stretched towards the ground. As soon as I moved towards him, he ran away. The second time was similar, but with a different hen (one of my "cuddly" Doms who doesn't pay attention to him). Again, as soon as I moved towards him, he ran away. Well yesterday I was putting chickens back in their yard, and when I turned to leave the yard, he flew up and I felt him get the back of my sweatshirt!!!! My friend who saw the whole thing said he flew up as far as my head (I'm only 5' 2"), and got me on the way down. As soon as I felt it I turned around to get him but couldn't catch him. I chased him all over the yard telling him I'd turn him into a chicken wing (he's too tiny for a full meal ) if he didn't start minding his manners. Anyways, what can I do to establish that I AM THE BOSS of the chicken yard?? Do I need to "posture" at him every time I see him? I adore his tiny size, I just think he's soo cute, and pretty to look at, and good with the girls. But I won't keep him if he's going to be aggressive. Just didn't know if there was something I could do to fix it or nip it in the bud? Today I picked up my cuddly Dom, and watched him. He watched me but didn't do his posturing when I had her or when I put her back down. Thx!!!
