    So my roo is 10 weeks old... and strong as an OX! I'm doing the dominance thing, carrying him around when I feel like it, or when he approaches (which so far, isn't often!), and turning him upside down if he snaps at me when I pick him up.

    BUT! He's so incredibly strong that he's getting difficult to hold on to. He flexes his legs and I'm all over the place trying to keep a grip on him. Is there a better way to hold him other than a hand on each side, holding his wings down?

    And whoever's slipping this guy steroids, knock it off! [​IMG]

    I hold them by the legs upside down.
