    Go into pen with your bucket without feed in it. Walk about, even allow rooster to check out contents. If need be get another bucket to sit on. Allow him a few minutes to give up on exploring / pushing you for eats. Then get some and poor it into feeder. I spend a lot of time around mine without immediate reward of feed for vary same reason. Groups interacting with me only when feed applied most likely to be problematic.

    This could very well be part of the problem. Having a dry waste free feeder always available would certainly help.
