My 2 bantam cockerels are 12 wks old and we "hang out" with them a lot, they seem pretty comfortable having us around. But we can't catch them without a chase, so we don't hold them much. The few times (very few) I have had to catch them, once I have them, they are very docile and will let us hold them no problem. I wonder if the scary "chase" part of it will make them aggressive towards us though. Will they get easier to pick up as they get older? Also, like I said they aren't physically aggressive to us at all, but I'm unsure about some of their body language when they "greet" me when I first enter the pen. So, by watching their body language, how do you tell if roosters are greeting you in a friendly or unfriendly way?
