    He's not a mean rooster, but my son says he "looks mean". The only way we can get him to go outside is to put him in his "roo gear". lol

    Actually, the gear is a good idea. It's never a good idea to allow a child around a rooster, even a usually docile one. The eyes of a young kid are just at the right level for damage by a flogging rooster. And little kids movements are jerky and grabby at times and may trigger an attack.

    BTW he's adorable in his goggles!

    I LOVE it!!! I have a 5 year old daughter who was afraid of a blue SILKIE [​IMG] He got his bluff in early and had her running scared from then on. She would love the idea of "roo gear". Thanks for sharing.

    Now that's a very constructive way of handling it.
