    My young new rooster that I hatched last year has started to attack my legs from the back and front. I've try to scary him by run with my arms waving in the air and shouting. Also used a stick, but he will not back down. He was not handled as a chick and should be shy, but seem to be too friendly, as he does not run away when he see anyone from my family.

    What should I do ?

    Ohh My Gosh That's Just a Rooster Thing I'm Having 2 Roosters And They Are Like That Lol ..
    don't be like they are hurting u
    They just telling u where have u been I was alone and showing u their anger ..

    Don't think for culling tame them ..
    I used to massage his neck and slowly say u are a good rooster ..

    Massaging Rooster Neck calm him down faster and tame easily ..

    Oh Okay, I thought that I was not supposed to touch him, as he would get to use to humans.

    Its like u r afraid of him ..
    See love is the answer not culling
    I have pet chickens and if u want to tame him love him hold him show ur love to him and u can see magic ..

    In other side u can also look for any symptoms or disease or mites as upset health make chicken aggressive I remembered when my rooster got cocci he used to bite my fingers after examination and treatment that thing gone
    Don't worry at all they are sweet creature

    Geez us
    That is not a rooster thing and he is trying to hurt you.
    Get rid of him asap.
    I don't believe in playing rooster games with bad roosters. Too many good ones that need homes to waste time trying to fix one. Especially when it very rarely works and is never long term.
    Usually the bad ones were raised wrong. I do the hands off approach as you did and don't have rooster issues. Imo you did it the right way and he is still an *ss so that's telling me he will not change and will get worse. I do agree with a good neck massage. A good hard twisting one.
    Cull him and let god sort him out.

    Well I got one rooster and he is here to look after my hens, by letting them all know if a fox or bird of prey is around.

    A good rooster will move away from you NOT toward you.

    There is no reason to keep an aggressive rooster.
    They can cause serious damage especially to children and elderly.

    Time for soup.

    Lead hens will also warn of predators.
