There definitely are. I used to think it was just one breed or a couple that would make it but it seems like there's a ton of breeds. I'd love to eventually get a Buff Orp roo (only because I keep hearing the RIR roos are mean) and make sex links but I doubt the neighbors would appreciate a roo lol
I think you can get a mean male with almost any breed. I raise pure Heritage RIR's and I never had a mean one, yet. I did have a RSL male that wanted to flog me. I sent him across the yard with my foot and he didn't try again after a couple of boots. He was too mean to eat so I took him to the auction. Did pretty well too.
Grow-out coop and pen.
