I've already posted here a few times about Stewy my roo. I was about to cull him a few weeks ago but I keep seeing how good he is with the hens and I'm reconsidering. Tonight after they had gone in their coop I picked up one of the hens for a health check and he ran at me. He does this every time I handle a hen. Once in a while he'll try to flog me with a wing. He tried it on Sunday night and got a free flying lesson from my foot. I have been picking him up and carrying him around but tonight after charging me I couldn't catch him and he mounted a hen right in front of me. So I grabbed a big fishing net that we have and scooped him up. After I got him and was carrying him around I noticed some blood near his comb. The net must have caught him in a bad place. I put some ointment on his wound and put him back with the hens. Sooo... I am still feeling bad about hurting him. Am I overreacting? I'm so new to chickens that I have no idea what is 'normal' roo behavior. I do not want to make him a pet at all so no one recommend that I cuddle him. I only hold him to show dominance over him. I see thread after thread about aggressive roos, taming your roo, making your roo a pet, etc. etc. but I'm still not getting it. Is running at me but not trying to bite or spur me mean that he is aggressive and out of control? I get dogs, I get cats, I think I even get goats, cows and horses but roos? Help! P.S. In his defense (not that he deserves it) he is fantastic with the hens. He does everything that I read about which makes him a great roo for them!
