He's 9 and yesterday he got attacked by our rooster that he loves. Nothing too bad (no real spurs yet) but he tried to bite him several times and chased him from the coop. I had asked him to go give the chickens some fresh cool water and he filled up a 2 liter to pour into the dish. Thanks goodness because it became his weapon He had to whack Roo to get away. He came running up to the house scared and said MOM I need backup I can laugh now because he wasn't hurt. Anyways he explained the whole thing and I figured out why he "attacked". Roo was just protecting his girls, my son was chasing one trying to pet her and I guess it made Roo angry. He has never been aggresive before to anyone. I wish I would've been there when it happened then I could've shown Roo who was BOSS. I just told Jake to never take his eye off Roo and don't pet the girls unless I'm with you. His feelings were hurt until I explained its nothing personal, Roo was just protecting his flock.
