I have 2 Sultun roosters and one has gotten very aggressive in the last 2 months. I have even had to be brutal to protect myself from him coming after my legs. Out of 8 roos this is the only one that acts this way. He needs to go but I don't want to just kill him if any one wants him. He might be better off someplace else with less roosters or will he always be like this?

I've read that roos can be "rehabilitated", in combination with the hope that their hormones calm down. Personally, a more proactive approach has worked, but i would not try to go through rehabilitation with a nutcase roo. It may not be wise to give him away, knowing his current disposition.
I have a hunting cabin in Guernsey County, Ohio and had my son take him for a ride. I couldn't put him down, maybe he was just doing his job of protecting his ladies but after drawing blood through jeans and knee socks (twice) it was time to move him. I couldn't take a chance with grand kids around! Sure hope the best for him, lots of trees for him to hide in.
So instead of offering him a quick and humane death, you choose to ditch him in the middle of a predator filled wilderness to fend for himself? How is being pulled apart and eaten alive by a predator better?! I'm guessing that you've never actually seen what a raccoon will do to a chicken, so you thought you were doing him a favor. But you didn't.
