    You could try squirting him with water when he shows signs of aggression.
    Is he a bantam or a standard?

    I used to keep a small squirt bottle of water hanging on the door to the pen, just for that purpose. Eventually all I had to do was hold the bottle and the roo would back off... I've got water and I'm not afraid to use it!!!!

    I have the meanest rooster that was ever hatched. I sectioned off a safe, secure, solitary-confinement place for him in the barn, and that's where he's going to spend the rest of his life. He ain'ta never gonna come outa there.
