First, I want to say I'm pretty new to having chickens. We got our first ones in June. The first one we got ended up being a rooster. I loved this chicken, Cheeseball, from the moment I got him. Never thought I'd say that! Well, I thought he loved me until recently. I went out for a run one day and when I came back up the driveway he full on attacked me. My first instinct was to run to the house (which I now think wasn't the best idea). He got me pretty good and I had a huge bruise on my arm. It was cold that day and I was bundled up with a hat and sunglasses so I though maybe he didn't recognize me. After that he was back to his normal self, eating out of my hand, following me around the yard like a puppy and letting me pick him up. Now he is starting attacking me again. Not as bad as the first time but still I don't like it and it's making me scared of him. I won't even let them out of the coop if I'm alone. I have to have my boyfriend do it. After some reading I see I should pick him up and calm him down but I'm at the point where I'm scared to do that. I'm not sure what else I can do. Help!
