    HI GUYS, I GOT A QUESTION ABOUT MY ROOSTER.
    HE'S BEEN CHASING PEOPLE AROUND FOR NO APPARENT REASON.
    DO YOU GUYS KNOW WHY HE IS SO AGGRESIVE?

    Sounds like he is just trying to protect his hens. Pick him up and carry him around for about 10 minutes everyday. If he struggles hold him by his legs and don't put him down until he stops. This worked for me with a couple roosters.

    I did what rooster red said with my rooster, but one day I came from work and I was real hungry so I ate the rooster,LOL now I replaced him with another one and the new guy is already scared to death when he sees my face.


    Thank you REDROOSTER.
