I would have put him in the crock pot a month ago when he had is first show of aggression. But my mom has begged me to let him live she named him and throws him treats over are fence in the backyard. Witch is fine cause he can't get to her. She really never walks to the coops witch are on the other side of are 8 acre land in a two acre cleared area. The chickens all free range. And I tend to them all so I'm the one being mostly attacked. He also attacked my cousin today. So I brought up putting him down and she started crying. So is there anything I can do to work the aggression out of him? I'm willing to work with him and try to save him for my mom. So any suggestions would be great. Oh and he's a beautiful black Minorca. If the breed matters just thought I'd mention it. Thanks

 

 

I think you are playing with fire just trying to figure out how to fix the roo, with his life spared. He is a danger. Have your mom go with you the next few days to do chicken chores so she sees it first hand then go for the crock pot. That roo isn't going to get any better. Kick it, chase it, hold it.... he's still gonna be a danger. You can not trust him. I have a huge scar on the front side of my leg from a roo like him. I would not keep him if I were you.

Ya I'm thinking the same thing. That there's no helping him. It just sucks my mom picked him out and named him. She really likes him. But I'll have to do what I have to do I guess.

Maybe you could take her for chicks, lots are selling them in my area so maybe you could find some that are sexed and get her a pullet or 2 or 10!! Good luck to you both!
