And before anyone responds hatchet.. I am no kill!!!!! I have attempted the whole pick him up and carry him around.. kind of a nuisance when you are trying to do chores and have a little roo tucked under your arm.. I have also been doing the hold upside down by feet until calms down.. he is so stealthy and comes after your feet/legs and thumps you usually from behind and man it hurts.. he is a bantam cochin and he packs a whalop! Now he does not do it all of the time.. well just most of the time. I have a larger SSH roo that is "in charge" and usually goes after him if he is acting up but I have NEVER had a roo or chicken come after me or anyone until now.. I can't kill him and am just frustrated as I am dreading shorts weather..any other suggestions?
