I have 16 hens to 1 easter egger roo. They are all 8 months old and are all a pleasure to own watch and interact with, up until now! My roo Sargent Peeps has all of a sudden started to attack me! He follows me around and jumps at my feet until i leave the area. I have a large sore bruise on my ankle now and just need to get this figured out so my son can go back in to help. They have a large coop and run area and they free range in a huge fenced in area as well! I only lock them up at night. I know that he is trying to show me he is top roo. I just want to handle it the right way. I have read so many threads where one says this but the other says that! I dont know if i should stand my ground and give him a little swat or kick which some say to do, or hold him upside down or ignore the behavior and offer him treats! Some say dont handle them as babies and some say do handle them. I'm so confused and really need to know the right way to handle him because he is a good roo for watching over his flock and gentle with the girls.
