I suppose I should start out by saying that I hate chickens. I like to eat them, but I dislike them when they are alive. The rooster here is very aggressive, like most roosters, and he used to try to attack me. Then I beat him severely with a stick several times, so he stays out of my way now. I can also go into the coop to take his picture without worrying about him attacking me, which is nice.
