Well I've read about on BYC a few times but did not think my roo would do it to me. My current flock includes 13 hens to only 1 roo. Plus ten 6-8wk old chicks that I am selling. They all free range from dawn to dusk everyday. That said.... I've had my EE roo since March 2010, bought him as a fuzzy chick from the feed store. Even though the bin was marked pullets I wasn't too disappointed when "she" turned out to be a "he". My chickens are all very well taken care of. He had always had the "stay out of your way and avoid you attitude", never a problem. However, early this morning I let them out of the coop and as I came up behind him walking by he slightly went after my leg, I quickly corrected him even going after him. I kinda let it go since maybe I startled him coming up from behind. BUT, later that morning I went out to check their food & water and he full fledge went after my leg again no misunderstanding this time, I again went after him and he tried it again seconds later, I went after him again and stood there staring at him until he walked away. I am so bummed he is such a pretty boy, but I don't want to be looking over my shoulder every time I go out there. Do you think this may have just been a battle of wills and who the real flock leader is? Possibly making this an isolated incident? Or could this be a sign he is turning aggressive? I have always said I would never tolerate such behavior, but sometimes it's easier to "talk the talk" than "walk the walk". However, if this is a sign of what's to come he's gotta go. So bummed!!
