I had a barred rock rooster that I never really handled and it still came out a man fighter. He would run after me every chance he got he would even run at me from about a 1/4 acre away. I thought maybe it was just because of him showing the hens whos boss but when I sold off my hens that year I decided to keep the rooster to see if not having the hens anymore would change his aggression but nope. Still attacked every chance he could. Dealt with this for about 6 months... Until he got a .22 cal pellet to the back of the head I didn't even enjoy him, my dog did stupid rooster. I have 3 easter egger roosters right now that are about 15 weeks. They're nice and keep their distance as of now but we'll see what happens with them. Will not hesitate to put out an aggressive rooster anymore. Not dealing with it sorry
There is no reason to tolerate an aggressive bird. Some of them completely lose their brains once the hormones hit and never get it back. They get locked in that over-protective, everything is out to kill my flock, so I must kill it first mentality. It's not healthy for the rooster, the flock, or the people that have to take care of the birds. Just imagine the kind of stress a rooster like that is living with every moment of the day. The most humane thing to do is to put him down, one way or another.
