Well I have been trying to keep my rooster and work on his behavior but he crossed the line this morning. Charlie has been charging and threating my kids and the younger pullets. Well my 8 year old son went down to gather the eggs and let the chickens out for free ranging as I wached from the deck, Charlie flew out feet first and spurred my son 3 times before I was able to run down and hit him with the broom, my son had 3 bloody scratches on his arms that were covering his face. Even though he has to go it is hard on me because I have raised him since he was a baby. So now all the chickens are out together for the first time even my 12 week old pullets in peace together as Charlie is locked in the coop awaiting his trip to another home without kids.
