Darrell is a four-month old Black Cochin cockerel, and his attitude gets worse by the day! A few weeks ago, when I determined that "Dagney" wasn't who I thought she was, but was actually a junior roo, I renamed "him" Darrell and took him out of the female population. Since he's been in the rooster pen, he's gotten more and more skittish, and downright hostile to me. He was hand-raised, complete with "lap-training" all throughout his chickhood, but now he's wild and suspicious of me. I fear his hormones are making him this way, but that he's going to present a real problem as he continues to mature. Has anyone had a cockerel like this, and were you able to turn this behavior around? If so, what did you do?
