My five month old Partridge Rock flogged my friends children yesterday. I have kids, we have kids over pretty regularly and have never had a problem before. The first time it happened was to a ten year old boy. He wasn't bothering McNugget or the hens, but he was completely dressed in red. Maybe I should have made him change before going outside, but we have never had the slightest bit of trouble out of McNugget before and it didn't occur to me until later. The boy got scratched but no serious damage since the roo doesn't have spurs yet. So, we had the ten year old boy change clothes and all seemed well until just before dusk. Now my friend's little 19 month old daughter is carried crying into the house all scratched up in just a matter of seconds. Fifteen minutes later he flies up behind my friends other daughter who is eight. He didn't get her, just scared her. I tried to intimidate him and it seemed to work a little because he choked on a crow, but like I said, he's never tried anything on me or my kids before. Any advice please? Is this a phase or is this something that is going to last? I will not tolerate a mean rooster, I just want to make an informed decision before jumping the gun. Literally. Thanks.
