I thought things were going good being down to just one roo. But Big Boy attacked me today. I had to kick him off of me. Then I went in the house and came back with fresh water, this time I was armed with a tobacco stick. And sure enough... here he came. I didn't want to hit him too hard but hard enough to make an impression. Well it wasn't working so I had to haul off and knock him in the head. Then he finally backed off. I guess I rattled his marbles enough for him to realize I meant business! I hate unruley roo's. I was so hoping he wouldn't get aggressive. But I think I've figured out why he did it today. Buffy my Cochin forgets how to get off the perch for some reason. She was in the coop hollering for someone to pay heed to her. And I think me being so close to the coop and her carrying on was what got Big so aggressive. I'm not sure. But it makes sense, doesn't it? edited to add: It (the whacking) sounds worse than it really was, just don't want anyone to think that I abuse my roo.
