Hi, thanks everyone. My pet bantam rooster is 11 months old and never showed any signs of aggression. He follows me everywhere, dances around me till I pick him up. One month ago we got him 2 hens and just this week he started being aggressive toward me and my husband. Now every time we go out there he runs at our feet. If we feed him from our hands he eats for a bit then bites us. Is this just normal because he's protecting his hens? Or could there be something else going on? What is the best way to get him to calm down? I've been picking him up whenever he does this and holding him, he's perfectly calm. Right now he's just hanging out inside my sweatshirt. But I want to be able to hang out with him and the hens in the backyard again? Please help!
