    I have a Barnevelder cockeral (Bumble) for whom i have raised since hatch. He keeps attacking my shoes which i got new and my sisters soft toys. He doesnt attack anyone, Not even my brother! But he did get edgy about my mum letting him out of his coop and i had to warn him off. He listens to me and will trot beside me and chatter away cutely when i get home but i was also wondering if he would likely attack me? I am the height in the Pecking order between me and my chooks and Bumble is Below me. Then theres my New Hampshire Pullet Pepper. Bumble does enjoy pecking and attacking my sisters plush cats and its quite entertainment.

    Will he ever be likely to attack me?!

    It's hard to say. Have you tried a different pair of shoes? Maybe he doesn't like the one pair? How old is he now?
