OK, so I understand the basics of a roo--his job is to take care of his flock, but when I am the object of his bad attitude I'm ready to toss him into the crockpot. It got to the point where I wouldn't go into the coop or run without a whacking stick due to him sneaking up/attacking me when I had my back turned. After suffering the indignities of being pecked at one too many times I got a much better whacking stick and the next time he tried to get me I got him back and GOOD. Now he seems to stay a much better distance from me but I still feel slightly intimidated by him. Is it a case of once a nasty roo always a nasty roo or do they mellow at all? If I wasn't so squeamish (or had a neighbor who would take him) I'd send him to the crockpot permanantly...but thought I'd ask for help. He is about 6 months old, if that matters. Thanks!!
