So, since my roosters have grown to full size, I have stayed away from the chickens as much as I can. No matter WHAT I do, the roosters try to attack me. I didn't handle them very much when they were babies, as I had my own baby at the same time. So, they are not very familiar with close-up attention from humans. (we have 4 roosters and 18 girls) Today DH asked me to give them water and collect eggs. I thought, Ok, I'll do my normal throw some scratch in the outside run and close the chicken door so they can't get into the coop routine. Unforuntately, my two Sultan roosters (who think they are 5 times the size) were still in the coop. They do the most attacking, even though they are so small...I'm still nervous around them. They don't give up...they just keep coming after you. (surrender!) I proceeded to put the water down and notice that the food was practically empty (DH must not have noticed yesterday that it needed to be filled). So I went back out, closed the door behind me, got the food and heard the blockade infront of the chicken door come crashing down...they had broken through! How the heck am I going to go in there, give them their food and collect eggs now!?!?! They were hungry and I had the food. So I went in, chest out to be brave, and tried to watch my back as I filled up the food with another bucket. I was so distracted because one of the girls jumped up on the nest behind me and i had roosters circling me. I dumped 1/4 of the food and got out of there pronto. DH had to go get eggs later and said "the chickens must have dumped most of their food!" I told him my story, and he laughed. Why do my roosters hate me so much? Even with them in the freezer, I think I'll have an issue with my women, as they frequently try and scare me out of the coop too.
