Hey, y'all. I'm still kind of new to poultry keeping. My 8 month old Black Swedish hen and year old Rouen hen have started laying eggs just about a week ago. My 8 month old BS drake has since become slightly testy. You turn your back on him and he will chase you. Brave man even chases my 70lb Labrador (who doesn't care about it in the slightest). I have a toddler who LOVES all of my poultry, so I don't want my drake to chase him and hurt him or crush his love of the birds. Has anyone else experienced this? Is it because it's mating season? Thanks in advance!
