Every once in a while I will have to re-assert myself over my rooster, reminding him that I am the alpha roo. My wife sometimes can't believe that this is the same timid roo that we saved at an auction for $2.00. I have been in and out of the house all day today while my chickens have been free ranging. When I went out to check and see if they had laid anymore eggs so I could gather them before they froze I was walking away from the coop and my rooster came running towards me then he dropped his wing in the dirt and started a face off. Well it did not go well for him as he was sent running for cover. Then again I just went outside to call the girls back from across the road and my roo charged me again. This time I got a hold of him and sent him flying while his girls stayed gathered around me. I know that this is normal behavior for a rooster. Even though I am out with them quite often he does not do this very often but I still must remind him that I am the alpha roo. I have read where people say to get rid of an aggressive roo but this one is a good protector and guardian of his girls and does not scare me at all.
