I have Americauna or Easter Eggers, whatever, they were sold as Ameracauna. 1 rooster, 7 hens. Rooster is now quite large and heavy, about 16 months old. There have been isolated attacks up to now that I could somewhat understand. But now, the last 2 days the hens have started flying over the tall cyclone fence to the open lot next door. I'm going to add some height this weekend and fix this, but meanwhile, when I go outside to get the hens back inside our fence, the rooster is attacking me, bad, and now his spurs are starting to really be painful. I know it's because he feels his hens are at risk and he's attacking the nearest target (me), even tho I'm trying to help. I realize it is territorial. But what can I do to alter this dynamic? I garden and so forth in the backyard, I can't have a loose rooster hurting me every time I turn my back, this is just not workable.
