My rooster has become aggressive with me, trying to spur me and pecking my feet. I've heard and read that a way to establish your "alphaness" is to pick them up and carry them around. I haven't had chickens before and am pretty scared to pick him up (he's really big - a Brahma, I think). Any other suggestions on how I can let him know that's not OK (I'd rather not hit him if possible)?
