    Where was my nice rooster tonight? He has never bit me before! First on my foot and then my hand..... and this was after i gave them some scratch....Im hoping this isnt how he thinks life should be!

    Of course my husband found the whole thing funny... watching me talk sternly to my rooster must have been an amusing sight lol!

    He's trying to dominate you.
    What I do to dominate my roos is try and push them over (be sure and do this before he gets spurs).

    Thank you! I will do this tomorrow, Since he charged me when i was in the coop putting them up for the night Im sure i will get bit again tomorrow......

    I do find the thought of walking around with him upside down quite amusing!!!

    Flipping your rooster upside down is terrible! It makes it hard for them to breath, you could just hold him fermly. I wouldn't recemend turning him upside down.
