Ok so our rooster is a year old. We have 6 hens who are the same age of a month younger. And 8 chicks hatched in April. So this spring our rooster who was so afraid of us started attacking me. I had done nothing but open the coop door let them out and when I turned to check for eggs well he attacked.. And it began every chance he got he attacked me and only me. (This is going to sound bad) I had a metal bucket one of those small ones you get at tractor supply. I hit him with it on one of his days he decided to attack. Well he doesn't mess with me anymore. He has moved on to my husband. He has bothered the kids some to but not alot. The plan is to take him to the local animal auction and buy a new one or keep one of the smaller ones if one is a roo. Is this wrong to sale a rooster who acts this way he is pretty and I hate the idea to cull him. Another question the chick I think may be a roo is one of his babies. Is there a chance it will be mean also?
