Definitely get rid of the meanie. I had a rooster named Mr. Soup. He earned that name and he was delicious.
I'm guessing your entire flock is the same age? Without an older generation to teach, the roosters will tend to be bullies. I made the mistake of ordering a roo with my first batch of chicks. You have a couple of options. Look on craigslist or ask around your local feedstore for a 1-2 year old rooster that already has flock experience. Or, wait until your flock is at least one year old. Then, start looking on craigslist and asking around your feedstore for anyone trying to get rid of a young "oops, that's not a hen." The older girls will thump some manners into him before they will allow him to mate.
Since you're not squeamish about eating your own chicken, remember also that most hens (pullets) will only lay for one winter, the next fall/winter they'll molt and take a break until the days get longer. You can avoid this with supplemental lighting, or you can put your flock on a cull/replenish rotation. I keep around 20 chickens. Each year I'll add 4 or 5 in spring and cull 4 or 5 the next time I process meaties. (most awesome broth ever!) That way, the pullets start laying by fall and I always have plenty winter eggs.
