    My rooster will attack me when I go into the coop to get eggs and the water bucket. He will attempt to attack me through the fence. How can I stop this behavior??

    You could try waving a cloth at him. One of my roos used to attack,but by waving a cloth at him it put him in his place for at least a week.

    Hope it helps.

    I'm sorry but here we allow no aggressive birds. He would end up being given away with the new owner's knowledge of his aggressiveness, or go into the freezer. No way will I have a mean bird. We tried absolutely everything to break our aggressive ones. there is a lot of advice on here but none seem to be permanent.
