I have a handsome, kind Black Australorp rooster in my flock who is generally docile around me. However, as fall has come in Maine, I’ve been wearing boots more frequently. He seems bothered by one pair in particular: a knee high pair of black leather boots (pictured below.) Occasionally he is bothered by my ankle height combat boots, also black leather. Do you think he thinks they’re another rooster? He has no problem with brown boots, or my black rubber Hunter boots...He has attacked and caused some pretty significant bruises on my knee (but the boots were fine, thankfully. My priorities aren’t great here.) Is there a way to train him not to worry about the boots or should I just make sure to change before going out? I don’t want to cause him stress if he thinks it’s another dude closing in on his hens, and don’t want to keep having giant bruises...so any advice is welcome!
