TRIED. I could sense he was going to try something - 3 yo was standing in front of run door, rooster was inside wanting out. He lept at her, I kicked him before he did anything to her. (Thank God, she's not mine.) He went down in a "so yah wanna fight?" mode - which he has NEVER done before when I've kicked him. (When he flaps and puffs at me.) He usually runs away and tries to look small. (Which is hard for a 9+ pound buff orpington.) He flew at me, I kicked him again. In the head. Whoops. He didn't come at me again, but I kicked him again for good measure. He was done with the fight, but I wasn't. No sir. I chased him around the yard for a good couple minutes, all the while he got smaller and smaller until he looked like a leghorn. 3 yo didn't know what happened, just laughed at me because I looked ridiculous chasing a chicken. I don't really know what I am asking, because I already know what ya'll are going to say, because I've given the advice before - cull him.
