I have a Buff Braham rooster that I have raised from a chick, he is 1 year old now. I handled him when he was growing up so that he would stay away from me when I went in the pen and he has done that until about 2 weeks ago when he started to challenge me. My 8 hens have been laying since last June when they started reaching maturity so they aren't a problem and their eggs are wonderful. Through the winter I still got at least one egg a day, now they are up to maybe 7 a day. So i am happy with them. I just don't like Roo challenging me. Any suggestions?
