I have a bantam rooster that has been babied and now out of the blue he has flogged my 6 year old and now me. Is this an on going thing and should i get rid of him?
I raised chickens before and this is the 1st time I have been flogged. I caught him by the neck when he jumped at me and he don't have spurs yet so now he is scared of me!
I told my son to stand his ground and he did.
Been a week and no more attacks. Good for his sakes
^^THIS^^It might work, but I am betting it won't. If he does not attack you, it might be another small child, perhaps one visiting you.
Very often, roosters that were the darling, become the nightmare. When they sit in your lap, and you pet and preen them, they take that as submission.
Be very aware.
