I have an easter-egg Ameraucana rooster who is under 1 years old but is starting to grow spurs. He is very friendly to me, I raised him since he was a chick, I give him treats everyday and he is spoilt rotten. However he has attacked me on three occasions, though the first two are explainable. The first time he kicked me was when I was holding one of the hens, the second time I was wearing red wellie boots. He really hates the colour red. And the third time he took me by surprise. I gave all the chickens seeds as treats but he suddenly spurred me from behind. I had to hit him with a bucket to stop him and eventually I chased him till he took off. After this incident, he has kept his distance from me. Usually he would come running up to the fence when he sees me but now he keeps away about a metre away, he doesn't come when I call for him, he clucks less around me and gives me that 'eye'. Maybe I'm over analysing things but I think I have destroyed our relationship. I would like advice on how can I make him friendly and comfortable around me? I read you should pick up and hold the rooster everyday till he submits but my rooster hates being touched and I fear this would aggravate and annoy him further.
