    Well, to him, all the ladies (and everything they produce) are HIS. It's his job to be sure that they are his, too, so don't get too flustered. [​IMG]

    He's just doing his job! If it were a predator coming in to the coop, you'd be glad he was guarding them!

    My rooster growls at me when I go in the coop so he now gets to free range all day long. My coop not his!

    And if he gets to close in the yard I haze him or give him a nudge just to remind him it is my yard too. Sometimes I think he is egging me on because he gives me the stink eye through my glass back door when I am in the kitchen. BTW the growling has stopped.
