I was sad and scared at the same time yesterday! Frank Feather Foot is my rooster and he is about 9 months old now. He is the only roo in the coop that he shares with about 20 hens. He is a very pretty Bantam Cochin. Well, I have noticed him coming at me when I pick up the girls over the last week. Yesterday he attacked!!! I screamed and got out! I LOVE my chickens and pick them up all the time...... Now since yesterday I am too scared to go in the coop. Is there anything I can do to get Frank to like me again? Or is he just being the man and protecting the hens from me and my LOVE? I am so sad, but if he dosen't calm down I'll have to get rid of him. I love hanging out in the coop with my flock and he is ruining it for all of us!
