My son is four. He doesn't bother the chickens anymore than a typical 4 year old. He is not rough or mean to them. For the past few days my roo follows him around when he sees him. The roo does not lay off either. My son is getting really scared and cries when he does this. I don't know if the roo is trying to scare him off since he is shorter than us or what. The roo did bite me yesterday when he was outside walking around. I didn't think I scared him, but I walked up and tried to pick him up. He got me in the hand. I have no idea if he was trying to be aggressive towards me since my BRs (7 weeks old) will get scared and bite or peck at me too. Do you think he has it out for Oliver? I have not let the roo get too close to find out what will happen. Maybe he knows Oliver is scared of him and is pushing him around?
