The cure for a human-aggressive rooster is to kick him. Then keep kicking him until he runs and then maybe carry him around by his legs for a while. Put the fear of God into him.

The cure for a hen-aggressive rooster is a stew pot.

No good reason to keep a bratty cockerel, all he will do is make your experience keeping chickens miserable and stress your hens.

agree with Queen Misha. There is NEVER a good reason to keep a MEAN rooster. So many good roos are desperate for homes - there is a glut of them on the market. Some are even show or breeding stock. Check out the BYC Buy, sell, Trade forum. There isn't much mean on a silkie BUT, the Asian market would probably snap him up. They love the dark meat, bones, etc.
