    My silkie rooster does this weird dance around me. He flapped his wings and charged at me but he doesn't really attack me he hasn't with his beak. What on earth is he doing? Is he challenging me? He never really attacks looks like it though.

    If your refering to when a rooster drops his wing and hops around a hen before he mates her, then he's doing his "love dance" for you. [​IMG] If he's just running at you but stops then he might just be threatening you. [​IMG]

    I think so. I have had chickens do that to me and it seemed like they were trying to intimadate me or be aggressive. I think it is cute and they have never made any contact with me in that process.

    Yeah sometimes he goes circles around me. His wings are down when he comes after me.

    When a rooster does the little "love dance" he gets a little agressive and up in the hen's face. Other than that I don't know. [​IMG]
