Hello,
In our attemps to catch our rooster to help him realize that the humans are the top of the pecking order in our yard, we have been using a net. This has been working quite well when getting him by hand doesn't work, but I have been noticing that when he struggles inside the net before we get him out, he sometimes gets small leisions on his rose comb. We don't want to injure him, but we want to safely capture him to let him know who is boss. Does anyone have any suggetions? These little cuts are about half the size of a grain of rice or smaller, but they still make us sad. Thank you for your help.

Thanks. I may try the old pillow case idea. Has anyone tried the crooks they sell for catching birds? Our Mochi is usually such a good boy, but once in a while, he gets a little too big for his britches, and I just don't want to injure him. Thanks again for your help.

I don't think such small cuts will harm him-roos fight all the time & inflict much greater damage.
