I know this pops up time and time again and the same reply of just eat him comes up but i want to know if there is another way. I have read people say just leave them be so they look at you as just the bringer of food and water. And that is the only role humans play to them. However i got a phone call today from a girl at the farm who was on the run from my OEGB cockerel who was tearing at her wellies. She is rarely the one that feeds them and just rides her horse at the farm. So i can't see why it has started attacking her. I told her that in the future she needs to stand her ground, try and look as big as possible and push him away with a broom so he realises he can't push her about. Is this the right thing to do?
