When my roo does the wing dropping circle dance he seems to be telling the girls to get back in the bunch or to behave.

They dance to impress the hens, if yours is dancing at you, he thinks you are part of his harem.

Never had a roo dance at me.

He wants to dominate. Pick him up and walk around with him before he gets to where he attacks you. prevention is always better. You must remain alpha roo to him. It is cute but for a roo it is business. Jean

Quote:I agree...pick him up and force YOUR attention on him and let him know who is in charge. While I agree they also do it when smitten for the girls, it can still be the first sign of a potential problem.

Quote:Agreed. My rooster can dance for the girls all he wants. The minute he tries it with me he's going to get an attitude adjustment.
