    So I took some spinach in the run to the girls and Dixon went after me. I did what some people have suggested, and caught him and carried him around until he calmed down. I put him down and a couple seconds later he went after me again so I caught him, carried him around and then put him town. I could tell he wanted to go after me a third time but he thought better of it. I took our spare waterier out and while returning it, Dixon just avoided me. I think he can be retrained if we're consistent and spend a little more time around him.

    I hope you're right. A little reeducation goes a long way. Good luck.

    Just did a new post. Went into the run and he attacked me worse this time while I was trying to get an egg. Looks like we're going to have to put him down. [​IMG]
