Hi all, This is my first batch of chickens. We have 5 hens and 1 rooster. The rooster is an Americuana-well that's what the TSC bin said at any rate I love to hear him crow and he has been friendly so far. My youngest daughter claimed that he jumped on her leg a few days ago. I had told her previously that I didn't want her in with the chickens unless Mommy or Daddy was around BTW. She told me this yesterday. I went in and scooped him up with no problems and they came over and petted him uneventfully. My husband has commented that when he lowers the coop door in the am that Hal has been "riding" it as he opens it. He's been coming toward my husband but hasn't tried anything. My older daughter said he was trying to fly up and land on her leg the other day. She said her leg was bent like a perch and he kept trying to fly onto it. She did not feel he was being agressive-but she is 9. Today I walked in with the chickens and Hal was at the door. When I walked in he puffed up, flapped his wings and flew at me. I just reacted and gave him a kick and them puffed up and chased him around. I don't know if I acted correctly-I just reacted! He is almost 5 months old. Is this normal testing behavior or is this a sign that he is going to be a mean rooster? I went back in a few minutes later and he came near me to eat with the girls but he didn't try anything else. My girls are 5 and 9 so I am not about to take any chances. but if this is just normal "testing teenager" behavior I don't want to get rid off him hastily. Any thoughts or suggestions?
