We have a Dark Cornish rooster and he has been very docile and friendly and even sweet. He'll be a year old in July. Well, the other day I was walking from the coop to our house and he was following me rather aggressively and I was watching him. Usually I just walk to the house, but this day I noticed that he was coming at me aggressively (for him, anyway, he doesn't usually do that). I stopped walking and he kept coming. I gently pushed him back with my foot and he came at me again. He did this 3 times. He wasn't trying to spur me at that point, but he was determined to try to teach me something, though I'm not sure what. I got him to stop coming at me. Even held him and tried hand feeding him later that day (he wouldn't eat, he is rather picky). Yesterday I was trying to pet him and he ran away from me, so my husband did the same thing and he ran away from him, too. Is it normal for a rooster to go from super friendly to so standoff-ish? We're keeping an eye on him, especially with the kids. Our chickens free range all day.
