So yesterday when I was out in the coop giving everyone treats my Silkie rooster attacked me. First he came after my toes (sticking out of sandals and I had done this before) and when I shooed him off he came after me again. I yelled at him and then he flew up and zinged me with a wing. I was so mad at him and at the same time didn't know what to do. He hasn't done this before and I don't know what to do to get him to stop. I'm thinking today I'll go out in my rubber boots, down coat with hood, and also wear my padded mittens (is this going to be a vision or what ). If he comes after me again I'll be more aggressive at shooing him off. I think I read somewhere you are supposed to then pick him up and let the girls see that he's not the top rooster (like I want to pick him up.....gad). Help me please. I don't want to get rid of him as he's been a good chicken but I WON'T put up with this plus I have two grand kids that I don't want harmed when they help me feed the chickens. Is this what I can expect from him from now on? HELP......please!!!
