Rooster

Why does our youngest rooster think he has to be intimidating? We have had him and his brother since they were just chicks. We love him but sometimes we would like to itimidate him

    hi
     roosters that are hand reared and handled often loose their in built fear of humans so will threaten or even attack humans that they think may be a threat to their flock or territory .
     the only way to stop him is to pick him up whwn he has a go at you and cuddle him for a while . this deflates his ego
    hope this helps

    Just keeping tending and caring for the rooster, but always keep you eye on him so he does not even attack his other brother. Be careful too during feeding and all so you don't get attacked either
