Hi, I got a bantam rooster last spring accidentally in a batch of chicks. Sadly, he's the only one who survived out of the batch, and all my other hens are standard-sized. I don't see much if any mating happening. I had a baby last October, and was quite ill and then had a c-section, so I haven't been able to devote as much time as I might have to dealing with him. Last fall he flew at my older children, scaring them but not harming them (but now they won't enter the chicken pen at all). In the past couple of weeks, he's attacked my legs, drawing blood a couple of times, and today he put two painful puncture wounds in my legs. I have tried, although not as consistently as I should, I know, to pick him up and carry him around to make him submit. I simply cannot devote 30 minutes or whatever a day to carrying around a rooster with an infant in the house. I would try to rehome him, but isn't that just putting my problem off onto someone else? And I certainly wouldn't want him to get into a situation where someone might put him in with another rooster to fight him. He doesn't protect the flock, or isn't able to--predators have gotten several hens and he's been tucked away and sleeping--I assume, because they were killed inside the henhouse and he was just fine. He does show them food, and seems to be kind to them, but he's mean to me...and I'm afraid of what could happen with a toddler running around. Are their any other options besides killing him, humanely? I don't want to be a bad chicken owner, and I have nursed ill birds along and done all the best things I know to do for them. They have plenty of room and rotating pasture surrounded by electronet. I had another rooster who was a bit rougher with the hens, but he never bothered me (and died protecting the flock). Please help.
