    Okay so my barred rock rooster is "coming of age" and is beginning to get aggressive. We love him to bits and REALLY don't want to kill him. He's been pecking my legs/slashing them with the things on his ankles. It's not painful ( I was wearing jeans) . But i'm worried that eventually it will. Whats the proper reaction to this? should I ignore him? stomp and wave around? Kick him ( I hope not..) Squirt him with a water gun? what should I do?
