We have 1 rooster and 5 hens. 2 of the hens are light brahmas and the other 3 are BOs. The rooster is supposed to be a BO too but I suspect he's not pure since his coloring is kind of off for a BO. Well, I don't know where they all got the idea that we are all kinds of awesome, but they all come running up to us all eagerly when we go outside (we let them out to free range during the day). The rooster follows us almost more than the hens do. He seems friendly and curious about us, but the problem is that he will puff up and jump on us if we approach him at all. So what happens sometimes is that he follows us somewhere and then corners us so we absoutely can't move until he walks away. He is totally fine walking around us, but if we move toward him in any way he'll get all huffy. We can't try to shoo him away because that doesn't work at all, that actually makes it worse and he attacks. I'm pretty scared of him (he hits pretty hard when he jumps), and I'm REALLY afraid for my son, who's 3 1/2, to be outside without me being right there to interfere if necessary. Is there anything we can do about this? Seriously though, if you don't want to be close to us, don't follow us!
