    i have 3 roosters. 2 very dominant and 1 sissy rooster. the 2 big boys are seperated but my sissy boy roams free with the hens. he just got his voice. he doesn't try to jump on any of my hens. but he does try to run up on me when i'm in the yard. like he's trying to be agressive.. but it doesn't work out for him... is this normal

    It sounds like he is just trying to dominate you. I think you can just pick them up and walk around with them to try to show your dominance, or if he doesn't get far with his aggression towards you at first it may just back down sometime.

    When he does start to mount your hens, make sure you kick him off of any if he tries to do it in front of you. ONly the dominant roo is allowed to mount the hens.

    Worked for me with my dominant rooster...unfortunately, he still went after my kids, so he had to go [​IMG]
