I have to provide a bit of background before I get called out for posting in the wrong section. I'm raising an orphan chick whose mom was hit by a car. Obviously its living conditions aren't spectacular, but I take it outside often so it can forage (I say it, someone told me it was female, I suppose I should use the pronoun). There are many chickens in Grand Cayman, but there's just one rooster that lives in our complex, who I named Castiel. Whenever he was around, he'd walk right up to my chick and, on one occasion, he actually tried to pick her up. So.. I definitely became wary of him. Now my chick will run to me whenever she sees him. Gradually, though, interactions with him became shorter, and I stopped seeing him for a while. Earlier today, I was sitting in a lounge chair as my chick was energetically foraging several feet away from me. Castiel slowly made his way over to her, but didn't seem to focus on her this time. Instead, he walked in front of her, blocking her from my view. He put his wing down and started stomping his feet. I did some searching, and figure that this is either some form of dominance or aggression, but I hadn't seen anyone mention this behavior with a chick in question. He was very obviously doing this at me, but I'm not sure what exactly he's trying to do. I'd love to be friendly with him, but if he's going to start attacking me and my chick, then I'll have to start trying to scare him away. Long question short, I'm looking for some feedback on what he's doing, and what I should do about it.
