I'm on my second roo. The first one (Cochin) attacked me and the kids relentlessly despite my doing everything recommended here on BYC. My second roo (Barred Rock) leaves me alone, but he has attacked my short 4 yr. old twice now. Today, after he flew at her multiple times, I finally caught up with him and taught him a lesson! Later in the day I took my daughter back to the coop, caught up the roo, and let my daughter hold him down & yell in his face. I'm hoping this does the trick. I can't believe that I read all the time about people having to give up nice roos because they're not allowed to have them, and all I want is a nice roo. Third time this guy goes! Which will be a bummer because he is good with the girls and decent with me. The kids really enjoy the chickens. I can't have the roo flying up in their faces Do they learn they're lesson?
