My cockerel Zebedee
Zebedee has the run of the house and sleeps on the back of my computer chair. During the day when I am on the computer he perches there. If I move to another room he is never more than a couple of feet behind me.
We get on very well. In the mornings he wakes up early and starts to crow. I bought blackout curtains in the hope that he would wake later but that didn't work.
However if it is too dark he won't jump down so I either have to go and pull the curtains or leave them slightly open and then he will follow me back to the bedroom, jump on the bed and I get into bed and he perches either on my shoulder or hip until the alarms goes off at seven.
However at odd times, often when I am standing at the basin shaving or at any other time he feels like it he will attack the back of my legs. Even when I am wearing trousers he draws enough blood to make my trousers and leg wet.
I can understand that he pecks my leg when he wants something like a digestive biscuit, but it doesn't seem like he wants anything when he fluffs up his feathers and attacks my legs.
I don't think he is being spiteful as when we go into the garden and I sit in my chair, he sits by my feet or spreads his wings and lays in the sun. I feel I am missing something and he is trying to tell me something.
Any ideas please.
