    Hi Im posting this again as apparently i may have putt it in the wrong spot before.
    I have a Rooster who is not aggressive at all, he even eats out of my hand.
    But recently he started to attack different objects. First of all sometimes he attacks my feet. I thought it was my boots but when i wear sneakers he does the same thing. And just today i was putting down a pan of water and he attacked the pan. Once he went after the rake. Could he be going blind? During the colder months he was shaking his head...i thought he was just cold. Not sure.. Any comments appreciated.
    Thankyu very much.

    It sound like he may have some sort of ear infection.

    Honestly I don't know. I've just heard alot of BYCers say that is a sign of infection. If you post in the emergency section I'm sure someone with more experience can help you.

    Ear infections or ear mites>> Perhaps! Or he could just be a strange one. My rooster chases my children but loves me!
