Help, Now I know a rooster is there to protect his brood but from ME?? I feed and water and they got a great coop. I had a cute roo but nature took its corse and a hawk got me cutie :-( Now I've got a new Roo and I got him from craigslist. the lady that owned him before said he was nice and knew him name and was friendly....except to the lil tiny chicken she kept in the house..... NOW, my problem is, I've only had this guy for two days and he keeps ATTACKING me. I just went out to check on everyone and he reared up and came at me. This guy IS NOT FRIENDLY. now I have a wound on my leg and a ticked off attitude. In the spring I'm going to let everyone out to the yard, but untill we have a bit less snow they are safe in the coop/pen. So, whats up with me... what do I do so I don't get beatten when attending my group? Help, I really like having a roo, and I feel that when they are let to roam my yard, he will come in handy, but in the meantime....I need less wounds.
