    If you hand feed them at all stop. Chase him off before his behaviour becomes an issue. Have a safe distance between you and him and never allow him in your comfort zone.

    When my roosters get to cocky I grab them and hold the upside down by their feet for a few min. After a few times they stop coming close to you and don't act agressivly.

    Some will never change and only get worse and the only solution is sending them to freezer camp, so be prepared for that you try other things. I've seen some roosters that are so nice and would eat out of a bowl in my lap and then there was Henry Jr... I tried for months and he only got worse till I sent him to freezer camp.
