I have a roo that has been showing aggression towards me whenever I pick him up, move him around, whatever. He's only "attacked" me once or twice, like flying at me, but now all he does is bite. Bc of this, I had to start wearing gloves to pick him up with. This morning as I was walking to his pen, he saw the gloves and was trying to jump at them. I figured he was just trying to be his big bad rooster self. When I picked him up, grabbed the gloves and hung on til I let him go. I took the gloves off and set them on the pen. A few minutes later he jumped up grabbed the gloves off the pen and took off running in a small circle. Then he laid them on the ground, pecked at them pretty aggressively, grabbed one and then started mating with it!!! He was doing the nasty with my gloves!!! After he finished, he just gazed at the gloves, pecked them a bit and went on his merry way. Do chickens, ahem, engage in self-pleasure or is he just a frustrated teenager with no access to a girlfriend? It was very bizarre to say the least.
