Pros: Pretty, Conversation Piece
Cons: First submissive then REALLY Aggressive
Not sure if the rooster I had is "Typical" but I got him in a trade for an Americauna Rooster. When I got him, he had been abused by the hens at his last home, and was at the bottom of the pecking order. For a time he wouldn't come down from the roost at all - not even to eat or drink. I had to put water and food up for him for a while. He did not crow. Finally he started coming down off the roost but stayed inside or very close to the coop. After MONTHS of this he got a girlfriend who was also low in the pecking order. After he had seduced her, he got a little more confident, began crowing and going after some of the other hens (this was funny since they were LF and he was a banty). In relatively short order he became so agressive that he was going after my kids, so we had to re-home him. I believe we had him less than a year.
