Does anyone know if chickens retain much of what happens to them when they are sleepy? Our rooster has been jumping on me lately and we're trying to get him to stop. I use a spray bottle when needed (sometimes just the sight of it seems to be enough) and I've also been bringing him inside at night after the chickens have gone to roost, holding him and feeding him treats. I wonder how much of this he will internalize though, given how sleepy he is during these nighttime sessions. I'm guessing it would be better to do this during the day but he's very hard to catch when he's out and about. He'll come eat treats out of my hand in the daytime but backs away quickly when I try to reach out and pick him up.
