So what can I do with a roo? No eating him, not keeping him.

List him on Craigslist or similar.  If you can't bear to know what his fate will be, then don't ask why somebody wants an ornery rooster that you don't want.

Ornery from Dictionary.com:

1. ugly and unpleasant in disposition or temper: No one can get along with my ornery cousin.
2. stubborn: I can't do a thing with that ornery mule.
3. low or vile.
4. inferior or common; ordinary.
 
So... he attacks your feet and is a common Production Red cockerel (not an exhibition quality Rhode Island Red).  About the only thing you can do is offer him for free and HOPE somebody wants to deal with him.

X2 on popsicle's suggestion; or as I also suggested on your other thread you can check with your local feed store. They may know of someone who would like to have him. Or you might check with your local 4h. One of the students might like to have him.
