    I honestly don't have anything that want allow me to clean their pens and most all of them will eat out of my hand, I do have 2 that'll work my 21yr. old nephew's legs over though. For some reason they don't like him. I had a high noon stag that I had to watch. I sent him to my brother-n-law

    The bloody mess statement is to be expected but describe how you handle the birds. Sometimes the aggression towards you comes from how you interact with them when they are younger.


    How do you handle them as chicks?


    How do you handle hens around roosters that go after you?

    My girlfriend and I raise them like they are pets, as they grow older they get more temperamental. When I go in the pens and they attack me I will pick them up, pet them, and place them back in the pen.

    Do the stags start getting aggressive with you even as chicks?

    Do the stags ever see you handle the hens where the latter appears frightened?
