    Help!! My rooster has been being mean lately! It's not all the time but he's been charging towards me and my 10 yr old! We keep stepping towards him to show him who's boss but he is continuing to charge! How can I change this behavior? Otherwise it's bye bye Henry!

    You need to really show him who is boss. Grab him & hang him upside down. He is just being a rooster & protecting the flock but he needs to know that's not ok. Don't show him fear. There are lots of forums on here about naughty roosters. Best of luck.

    He's so fresh! But I don't want him to bite her tho! So I will try and catch that bird!
