You won't know the real demeanor of the keeper until the others are gone.
Just pick one and hope for the best, while also monitoring your own behavior for success.
I make sure they are both kind of afraid of me and also know I won't hurt them.Can you say more about monitoring my behavior?

I only handle them enough so they know they won't die if I touch them. I do this at night off the roost and use my soft voice with them, just grab them handle them a bit touching them all over, then put them back on the roost. I also handle the females the same way and more often, so both he and they know I won't hurt them. I also spend a lot of time walking thru the coop and run, never getting out of their way but walking 'thru' them. I don't try to touch or handle the birds in the daytime, I leave them to be chickens. Hand feeding can help too. It's most important to be calm and cool while around the birds, if you are nervous/fearful, it makes them nervous and more likely to panic or attack.
Many chickens are afraid of bright red, orange or rubyred colours and wild big graphic patterns. The react alarmed and roosters will often attack the object showing the above mentioned colours or patterns.but I was wondering if, like with dogs, there are certain things to do/not do to keep them on their best behavior.
