I have a young roo; he is about 4 months. He is very pretty and WAS sweet. However, it seems those hormones have kicked into gear. He sneaked up behind me and bit(hard) at my legs a few days ago. I kicked him to make him stop. He was starting to come at me a second time when I got in a good kick. Then, I picked him up and carried him around. Today, I was wearing sandles and he ran up and bit my foot hard enough to bleed. I kicked him away.

Also, he is not really breeding the hens yet, but he is pulling out a LOT of feathers. He will just walk up and pull out their feathers. Will he settle down, or will this behavior get worse?

Get a "Cockerel Stick" .. When ever my roo is out I have a stick ..Mine isnt bad at all but i think its because from the moment i got him he knew I was the boss ... You dont need to whack him or anything just push him out of the way when he gets close.. All i need to do now is lift the stick off the ground and mine knows its time to go into the run again

That is a good idea. However, so far, he is a bit sneaky in how he bites.
