When roosters attack

Roosters rule the roost, but when they start attacking people, something has to be done. The problem often begins when roosters perceive your actions as aggressive. Wearing floppy boots or swinging a bucket may seem like a challenge in your rooster's eyes, and as the guardian of the flock, he won't back down from a challenge.
To tame an attack rooster, catch and hold him whenever he starts acting up. Make sure you're wearing protective clothing. Hold him until he calms down and realizes he isn't going anywhere and that you're in charge. Be persistent. This method may work better with young roosters rather than older birds who are more set in their ways.
