I've had my rooster for several months now. He is a white rock and fairly large (9lbs estimation). He used to be really cool. I could practically pet him and he was never aggressive. This past weekend we had a birthday party and I guess 40 kids and adults might have freaked him out. He bit two people. I thought at first it was simply because they were strangers, but now he has taken to attacking my wife and kids. My kids run fast enough to get away from the waddling fat little sucker but my wife is freaked out. I have to smack a pvc pipe on the ground and he will stay away from her (maybe cause he knows I will smack him) He doesn't back down with a good whack though.. honestly he's just plain mean now. It's been a couple days since the party. Is there any hope of him calming down eventually? I don't mind killing/eating him... but my wife and kids are kinda attached... even with his meanness. I just don't want the hassle of escorting my wife to the car during the day when he is free ranging.
