So my meat king pet, Kiwi, is about a year old and a few months ago he unfortunately became aggressive towards me despite formerly being a true dear bird who received alot of attention. I would like to know how long this aggression lasts...5 or 6 months as the internet states? or longer? forever? He lives with his meat king hen Coconut of the same age. So he tries to attack me every time I go into their coop and he is too big to 'pick up and carry around' as has been suggested on the internet...to show him 'who is boss'. I have ended up kindly inverting a laundry basket over him whenever I go into their coop, just long enough to put down the feed and water, then take the basket off and make a quick exit as he might either run for the food or go after me again, before I leave the coop. Please note the laundry basket is a light weight one with holes in it...if that sounds any more 'humane' and he is only under it for about a minute. The other option is to keep rolling him over gently with my foot as he goes after me which i don't like doing. He is making my life with my birds miserable. I am scared of him. I understand it is his hormones and he can't help it. I don't feel I can simply rehome him as who would want him...he may become abused...etc, and I am responsible for him as he and the hen were held back on processing day for a reason...because they were runts and I cared about them. But I can't spend any quality time with the hen, Coconut, who is a dear hen, so I'm wondering what I should do. I feel I might have to take him to someone who can end his life in a humane way and be done with it...but that is not an easy thought / out for me. We have just built a new coop which accomodates two laying hens on one side (who hate the meat kings) and then the meat kings on the other...so there is no room to divide it again and put the rooster 'monster' in another space you see. Anyway, thanks to anyone who is reading this and I would appreciate any ideas you may have.
