Perhaps you've seen my other posts about this rooster: he's almost 5 months old -light brahma. I've had them all since they were 3 days old so they follow me around call at the door for me etc. AnYways our nightly routine is I go out to get their food bowl bring it in the house to fill it while the entire flock (3 chickens 2 ducks) follow me get under my feet and trip me-its the most exciting time of the day. Well tonight the rooster started attacking my female rouen duck -unprovoked from what I saw. I yelled and clapped my Hands he stopped then as I was taking the food to the pin he did it again. So I chased him around for prob 30 min -hes lucky I'm pregnant and couldn't catch him. I let everyone else in the pin - they ate and went to bed. I locked him out and chased him til the sun went down-hes to smart to back into a corner where I could catch him. I finally let him in the pin and he had to find his bed in the dark. SO my questions are: was this an appropriate response from me? All the suggestions say to catch and hold aggressive roosters-but I couldn't get close enough to grab him so what do I do? Towards the end he was making the most pathetic whine for the girls and trying to claw his way in the back side of the pin -did he learn his lesson? I've never seen him act aggressively towards anyone except the crows that come in the yard. And generally the ducks bully him. But he's becoming a big boy- so maybe this is a new habit??
