Hi, I am a new chicken owner of BBR Old English bantams, 3 hens and 1 rooster. My hens have been laying for 4 months and recently my kind rooster has taken to attacking our feet and legs when we enter the coop in the evening and now even walking by him during the day. He will eat out of my hand, treats the hens well and watches out for them well. I just got 6 new chicks hoping for some more hens, but I am thinking I may need to get rid of the rooster if he doesn't shape up. I am trying to hand hold and really work with this next batch hoping for a kinder boy. Any suggestions on teaching my rooster better manners? I would like him to stay if he could shape up.
