The straight run gods were looking after me this year & out of the 2 SR chicks, I ended up with only 1 roo and thankfully, he's a bantam! When he turned into Mr. Hyde, I started trying the methods used by lots of others...backing him off, carrying a stick (well, a big weed), and mugging and snuggling him. In the last round of roo mugging, something finally got into his brain. When the crazy lady looks at you and (in high pitched baby talk) asks if "Wooster bird want a muggie-muggie?" RUN RUN FAST It's been over 2 months since I've had to catch the little beast and now I don't even have to carry anything.
