    That is a sticky situ, Insanity. If it were me, I would pen him in his own little area, away from hens and children. Then I would look for a (affordable) replacement cock with the kind of temperament that you want to pass along to your future generations. In my opinion, keeping a mean rooster would be the same as keeping one with side sprigs, better to cull. In the meantime, only mate him when you absolutely have to and only to the best tempered hens.

    Remember, the mean ones taste better..........

    I really dont mind Canadians - they are alot like Aussies but with really pale skin and a funny accent

    A very attractive Canadian actress and I shared the same bed - it was just at different times. She rented out a house we had across from Sony Studios in Culver City

    It was an unprovoked attack. My boy was sitting on a chair tossing scratch.

    That's pretty typical. I've had birds that wouldn't dare go after me, and never had, that went for my children. I really like the post from beekissed that Ron quoted, because I feel that really sums the situation up - the rooster is acting like the dominant bird and treating the child as a subordinate to be pushed around. My kids have had the same issues with our goats and miniature horses. Once you get it straight that "I move you, don't you dare try to move me," things get a lot more peaceful.
