I love my rooster. He is a broody hen hatched too, mama hen had her first batch at 8 months old in the middle of winter!! Anyways back to the rooster, Bubba. At 3 months he realized he was a rooster an not a hen (he is the only rooster) he started trying to mate with adult hens and crowing. He is very protective of his girls. Already lost his tail feathers twice when a neighbors dog got in our fence. He has never tried to attack me but I just know its bound to happen. He comes right up to me and eats out of my hand. If i don't have food he wants no part of me. My question is when he tries to kick me, what do I do? I dont want him to be chicken n dumplings, he is so good tothe hens, he even feeds my broody hens chicks right out of his mouth. Any advice?
