I got a present of a polish bantam rooster two days ago, told he was very friendly. Friend gave me three silkies too, one a rooster, but they are only 3 months old, very tame and love cuddles but very shy. The rooster keeps stalking me and running up and attacking me, wings flapping, claws flying the whole jazz. The silkies wont leave the coop. My Rhode islands wont lay eggs and the rooster wont leave them alone. Rooster wont go into the coop at night. Its a large clean coop suitable for 30 birds. He sleeps in the grass outside and I have to put him in when he is asleep. No problem picking him up at night. I read that picking him up when he attacks me is the best idea but I have a baby in my arms all the time and this is not possible. I have left him be to settle in, I have given him treats but if he hears me come outside he is after me and the kids. He was fine day one but a nightmare since. I cant get to my 3week old chicks to feed water them at all today until.i got him locked in the coop. I have no run, my chickens are free range. My baby chicks are the only things in a pen. What do I do. He is beautiful and I am completely against killing him. I don't need a rooster. Why does he come out to attack me. Will he settle down or will I bite the bullet and try and sell him to someone that wants a rooster.
