    A cockerel rubs it's face on you? This one approximately 2 month old cockerel likes to sit on my shoulder, and sometimes he will rub his face/comb ? against my cheek. He's done this repeatedly when he gets on my shoulder. Someone tell me if he's just trying to be affectionate in a good way or if he's letting me know I'm his woman/subordinate or something I should nip in the bud!

    Thanks!!

    It is nice now, but I would not want a roo sitting on my shoulder, that is too close to my eyes.

    Oh I agree with you, it makes me nervous, I'm always closing the eye closest to him whenever I see him looking with interest. Those beaks look sharp. Almost a relief when he jumps on top of my head, or better yet, down...​
