    My buff orpington rooster is very mean to my 7 year old brother, and he won't even go outside when the rooster is out. Does anyone know how to make a rooster nicer?

    Unfortunately it is very difficult to train a mean rooster and often they only get worse with time. I would get rid of him ASAP. There are plenty of roosters for the picking so I would try a different one if you want a rooster.

    Invite him to dinner.

    No person should be held captive by an animal, ever.

    I agree.
    remove the rooster from your flock by the method of your choosing.
