I have a banty cochin rooster that has begun to attack me. I have never encountered this with this breed. They are always calm birds. A couple of months ago he began to attack my shoe, I ignored it for several weeks., and his habit did not go away. Then I began to pick him up when he pecked my shoe. Just held him and let him go. He began to grab my pant leg or glove and not let go. I put him in solitary confinement for 3 weeks. He could see the hens but could not socialize with them. I let him out a few days ago and he has been the perfect gentleman until this morning when he grabbed at my pants. He is from excellent lines and is a beautiful bird, but I can not chance that he would attack my little grandchildren and scare the bejeepers out of them. Anyone have any tried and true techniques that would help stop this behavior?
