I have two roos, a Buttercup and a SLW. The buttercup will sometimes run at my ankles and fluff up a little but has never came at me. Last week the SLW came at me from out of the blue at my back and spurred my back thigh area. Although it didn't hurt bad it caught me off guard, and now every time I go into the run he comes at me and so does the buttercup. The SLW jumps over 2 feet off the ground when he hits. I've read all the posts about how to handle this and honestly I have a builit in survival reflex too. I swatted at him the first time out of instinct and it made him come after me even more aggressively toward my face. I've been carrying a large stick now when I go in the coop. I instinctively want to kick him into the middle of next week. I don't like this. I do NOT enjoy this aspect of chicken raising but I understand it. I tried to catch him to show him dominance and he lunged at my face and I swatted him down. I hate to say it but I've processed 12 roos for dinner so far, and the great Waldo is going to be next if he does this again! I've got a few packing peanuts on the way and surely not all roos do this!!
