Okay, I'm having major rooster problems like the title says. My rooster has always been a little aggressive but today it reached an all time high. He full on attacked me while I was walking through my yard, he stuck his spur through my ugg boot! He is a massive bird with 2 1/2 inch spurs. My hen just hatched out a clutch of 12 eggs, so she's been broody for a month or so. So I don't know if he is being protective or if he is mad that he hasn't mated with her for a while? Is there anything I can do to make him less aggressive? He was so good for about a month but now he is completely insane again. I know that you can pick them up and carry them around, or you can press the down to the ground and hold them down to tell the to stop. I mean, I tried yelling at him, I tried being the "bigger bird" I threw a stick at him, I kicked him, I did everything until I finally grabbed and bucket and started banging it and he was scared of it. It was ridiculous. Any suggestions?
