    Well I know recently I have been telling everyone Oliver is mean. I was so scared just walking by him. But yesterday my dad grabbed him and let me pet him. I then realized I was over reacting. He's just trying to protect his girls and he doesn't want me to interfere. I mean I've seen shows where a rooster killed the hens. Oliver's only following his instinct.
    He still scares me but I'm working on getting over my fear.

    I feel ashamed,

    Awww. Don't be ashamed, I still run from my rooster sometimes and we have had him for years! He actually challenges you because he is just as afraid of you as you are of him!
