Hi everyone, I am a long time reader first time poster I have a little flock of 6 girls and 1 rooster. He is a buff orp (bantam) they are all around 10 -12 weeks old. I have one Barred Rock who is about 18 - 20 weeks old and has been hiding in wood piles at times could she be laying in there? All the Hens behave more like dogs then chickens following me around and eating treats from my hand. Mr. Rooster wants none of that and will never take a treat from me. He has always been a bit assertive and recently has begun pulling the one of the girls around in a mean way by the feathers on her head - well I guessed that was just part of he's mating dance. Then today I was leaning in to the coop for something (they were free ranging) when I feel my heel being pecked and he is kicking up a racket and pulling on my pant leg. He's feathers were all ruffled and he was puffing up his chest. He was mad! It was pretty funny from my perspective but I am wondering what I could do to show him that I am not a threat and have him trust me like my girls ? Thanks! BTW love this forum!!!
