What can one do to eliminate bad behavior? I know how to train a dog, but not a roo. My little black cochin attacks me almost every time I go in the coop. He is the only rooster, with 8 hens. At first it was kind of funny, but its getting painful. It's winter now, and I have on gloves, and pants, but come summer, this could be a problem. I shake my finger at him and try to convey dominance, but I started thinking what if I am aggravating the situation? I don't know how a rooster thinks, he actually sneaks around behind the hens and tries to jockey himself into an attacking position, his eyes glaring. Before this becomes war, any suggestions? One more item (totally different) I have one hen that lays green eggs, they are kind of speckled, almost a textured grainy feel. Is that normal for her? Thanks, sick of getting bit.
