We've always had pretty docile roosters until now. I read the rooster behavior article in the learning center and understand that our others were carried a lot by our daughter and this one has not been carried as much (Daughter moved out recently). Rooster sees me as a threat, but not my husband or daughter (when she is around). He jumps at my leg. I am not out there very often, but the rooster has been known to jump at me when I am getting into my car and when I am letting them out of the cop because my husband is out of town or something. He is a very protective rooster and may have saved the hens from an eagle, but I cannot stand him! I have no interest in carrying him around. I just want him to leave me alone. I assume he would treat others the same way if we want to go out of town and have someone let out and lock up the birds and I can't have that. Ideas please! We took him from someone who couldn't have him in the city because he crows a lot!
