    Today when I picked up one of my hens my roo attacked. He hasn't done this before when I picked them up. I think it was because my hen started crying like I was hurting her. Anyway he hit my elbow and forearm and now I have lump on my arm. I didn't know that they could hit that hard [​IMG] . I was pretty mad if my mom didn't love him and I didn't love him he wouldn't have made it. I on held him ground and chased him a bit.

    That sounds painful! When one of my pullets leaped up and bit my finger, I just put my hand gently, but firmly on her back for a minute. That's probably a lot easier with pullets though. Good luck. I hope that he sees you as the boss soon!
