I have a rooster that I just love. Lately, though, he has been challenging me and attacking my legs. I had a major fear of birds growing up and when I got our chickens this past spring, I was very happy to be over the fear. Well now that the stupid rooster keeps attacking I am afraid of him. It doesn't hurt, but it freaks me out! AND today our other rooster did the same thing. What can I do to keep this from happening? I know they smell my fear...... My biggest issue is that he has stated doing it to my kids. He doesn't hun t us down, but if we get near him then he does his quick step with one wing down and attacks. It is really kind of funny looking but I don't want him to hurt my kids or me. Any advice would be appreciated.
