I have learned from this site that we have to teach our roos to have a healthy respect for us but it is so hard to do. Today though my roo was chasing the babies and pecking them from across the yard while I was outside. I ran after him (he started away from them as soon as he saw me coming) and caught him then held him upside down by his legs. He fought for awhile (not pecking, just flapping his wings and trying to straighten up) but finally submitted. Afterwards he was very meek. Was I too hard on him for his behavior or is that what I should have done? Advice would be nice because I want to take good care of my chickens and do it correctly. If that is what I need to do to be "in charge" then I will but if it is too harsh I won't do it again. Thanks! Note: I edited this post from before bc my other question truly belonged in a different section.
