well, my guy is a year old and has three hens. he was a good guy until a few months ago where out of nowhere he spured me when i was messing with my goat. thought well maybe he did it on accident. nope next time i fed them he went after me again. i tried grabbing him, tossing him , slightly shaking him, holding him upside down, carrying him around,cathing him when he is in mid air and tossing him. but it only would help for a week or so then he would turn around and do it again. the girls would get scared then be scared of me. those spurs hurt. i am not scared of him, but i dont understand why he chooses to just randomly go after me when i am know where near his girls and i am the one that feeds them. they free range at least three times a week. he recently got attacked by my big puppy which ended up pulling his feathers out of his tail. (she jumped the gate when i put her in the yard for not more then 5 minutes ) do you think it calmed him down, no the next day he tried to spur me again. He is not the type of rooster that would fend his hens to the death either. so the pup just got lucky catching him since he is so noisy she got excited. she is a work in progress and usually the chickens are in the coop when she is out. any suggestions for this guy. he is a very nice looking guy and the only rooster i have. i gave away the last rooster for doing the same thing. he decided to spur the help too. I dont get home early sometimes so someone comes and feeds the animals, well he spured her too.
