I have an eighteen-week-old SLW rooster that has suddenly started challenging me. He's the only rooster on the place and he has two SLW hens, one of which looks like might start laying soon. He's already challenged and conquered my nine pound dog. He nearly tore a crow apart that snuck into the run to eat their food while they were out free ranging. But he has always been really sweet to me and my kids. He has never actually made contact with me. He just dashes up to my leg with his hackles raised. If I turn around and stomp my foot he gets all outraged, "bagok! bagok! bagok!" (out of kicking range). This has happened three times. Today I realized that every time it has happened I have been wearing capri pants with strings hanging down from about mid-calf level. He seems to be staring at those when he dashes at me. So, the question is... Is he a hormone-ridden jerk or does he hate my pants?
