He really did! This was not a peck. He literally bit me and drew blood! Rhodey is 14 wks. old now and this is the first ever sign of aggression from him. Thank heavens I have already read rooster-red's rooster advice, so I felt like I somewhat knew how to handle it. He was protecting my little 9 wk. old BR hen. I tried to pick her up and she went to squawking and flapping her wings and that's when he moved in for the kill! Needless to say I grabbed hold to that boy and we went for a LONG walk around the yard. We visited the tomatoes, the garden, the goats, checked on the willow tree that was planted two months ago, locked up the van, etc... What a stinker! I had no idea that he had that in him. OUCH!
