I wasn't going to bring that solution up but since you did, I'll add my tale. Our first rooster was BAD. As soon as you walked into the run he was on you. Even when he was out running free during the day he would still attack as you got near the coop. One day he came at me and I had decided I'd had enough as he already torn one pair of pants. I hauled off and kicked him; hard. He flew about 15' and just laid there. I thought I had killed him which was not my intention. I walked over to him and gave a little nudge with my boot and he jumped up and ran away. Never had another problem with him.You can also try kicking it....repeadetly, in the face. It will take a beating and won't quit for a long time but when it does he should see you/the wife as higher on the pecking order and quit attacking.
I'm the one that gets attacked at our house, they leave the wife and kids alone. The only thing that works for me is to keep 4' sticks near each gate. When I enter, a sticks goes with me. Keep it extended out from me touching the ground. I think it makes me seem bigger or something because he won't bother me when I have it. If I enter without it, he comes right at me.chklve said:My wife has a hard time getting attacked by an aggressive rooster. It's to the point she wants to get rid of him. To my understanding there's nothing that can be done about it.
Am I wrong?
this is NOT the way to deal with any aggressive animal! and NO it's NOT kind of like a dog! I breed and raise Rottweilers to get respect you have to earn it and be firm but fair! beating any animal of any kind is NOT a solution! shame on you I really hope you don't own many animals...Up-Alpha???..pure ignorance!You can also try kicking it....repeadetly, in the face. It will take a beating and won't quit for a long time but when it does he should see you/the wife as higher on the pecking order and quit attacking.
Kind of like a dog if you can Up-Alpha them they get the point eventually.
Or eat him, they are extremely replaceable every summer.
Cindy, I must respectfully disagree.this is NOT the way to deal with any aggressive animal! and NO it's NOT kind of like a dog! .
