Coop Chic and teaching lessons

    My little roo has decided to become a monster. I have boots on lately due to the snow and slush, but once the summer comes he's going to be able to do some damage unless I teach him a few lessons. The other day he got my hand good when I bent over to pick something up. So, this morning he decided to flog at me again, repeatedly, so I caught him and carried him round for awhile. He was still feisty, pecking me on the hand twice while I held him, he stopped when I grabbed him by the neck and showed him what I could do.....anyhoo, here's a photo of me in my chic morning coop attire. He didn't like it in the house one bit, so I kept him in there for awhile to reinforce the lesson!

    Well hello, Ann, nice to put a face to the name. Your coop chic looks like mine! [​IMG]

    I had a little Golden Sebright roo, he was a sweetie when he was young, but when he reached maturity he got impossible! I tried all the usual tricks, but nothing settled Pico down. I would do the Alpha roo performance and it lasted a while, then I had to repeat it. I finally found someone who liked his looks more than she worried about his attitude. Whew!

    Never tried the faux neck-wringing, wish I'd thought of that!

    [​IMG] 'cop chic'....very funny!!! Mine was pink, diffrent pattern but similar 'style'. Just so it's clear, I am not usually a pink fan but the flannel PJ's are cozy.... Hope your feisty roo gets the message!

    I went out earlier this week in flannel jammies and a long robe- scared them all half to death! [​IMG]

    What a great idea. I have a roo that bites me sometimes. I am going to try that. Maybe not in my jammies. [​IMG]

    I had to catch him first, I used a collapsible rake, it didn't hurt him - but it did surely set him off! I'm always out there in the morning in my jammies, as my work attire is too cold and too thin to wear into the coop - I'm usually in yoga type clothing.
