So I have a 4 month old barred rock rooster. The other day my 15 month old son was in the chicken yard and he jumped and kicked my sons stomach. I kicked him away and my husband chased him around a bit. A few days after that, I was just standing with all the chickens and he pecked my leg, hard!! I grabbed him by the butt and held him upside down for a second and chased him and made myself bigger. Today, he jumped at my 7 year old nephew and scratched him up. His mother chased him around and he tried to get to my nephew again. I need some tips as to how to handle him. I'd like to work with him-I'd hate to lose/cull him without trying anything first. Could this just be adolescence? I'm willing to work with him but am very concerned as we have five young children that go down into the chicken yard with us. I'm open to any suggestions.
