    I went to go count the toes of some of my chickens (long story) anyway my roo was NOT having it and flew around the coop and landed on my head!!! no injuries... ....I knew he was no good he kept giving me the eye. I made a poking motion at him with my little broom, but did not have anything long enough to reach him. I did hit him off of me though.... he is gonna end up dinner one day anyway but at the moment I need the little bugger, or do I...

    this is my first Rooster attack although it is also the first roo I did not eat or trade. Before I joined BYC (which was not very long ago) sad to say I did not know that they could be so aggressive, then I started reading posts and omg.

    Well, I guess you're lucky he didn't scratch one of your eyes or something! I'm sure he'll make great soup!!!

    Don't give up on roos, though. There are lots of very sweet ones out there and they are worth having to cull a few to find them!!!

    ok I know I sound like a baby but now I am afraid to go into the coop to get my eggs. This is my winter "hide my roo in the garage coop" so it does not have a trap door for egg collection, although it will by next week! What should I do? should I collect when they are sleeping?

    Quote:I might actually consider that lol but I am thinking that might start a fight lol and he's a big one and has the advantage of flight! Actually the coop is pretty small about 8X10 so I feel as though it is tight quarters to say the least. in addition when I want to grab him for culling I should do it with a blanket maybe, or a net? or just grap him when he is sleeping???
