    Oh i meant basically what you described. Sweet and doesnt charge unless provoked. Also going a little of topic here, is it possible to train my rooster to be sweet? Because my family wants to eat him because of his agressiveness and i am basically the only one standing in the way of him in the dinner plate. I want to teach him to be less agressive before someone gets injured and we have to kill him.

    Well you could show him who is boss by taking a broom or something out with you and when he comes at you just swat it at him it shows him that you are boss and not him keeping him away from you and your family and just do it for about a week and then just do it every once and a while to keep him in line

    He isn't really calm trying to catch him but he don't mind being held or petted once you get him
