My RIR is 6 months and found his hormones!! I know what to do when they attack because i've read plenty. He grabbed me by the back of the leg today and i immediatly put pressure on his back until he was laying down in front of his hens!! Why does he do the dance and then attack?? Does he see me aas the enemy, and is trying to protect the girls or does he think i'm one of the girls he can mate with. I am sad,because up until today he was my favorite. I know that's what they do and i knew this was coming, i was just hoping it would come later!!!
