Welcome new members!!!
I think if he is raised with the kids you should be okay. Just keep an eye on him and if he shows any signs of aggressiveness... Then do what you deem necessary... cull/sell.
But you might find you have a sweet roo.
some roosters are supper some are super, we have a 4yr old he has never gone after any one not even the smallest kids, we have had others that had to be watched ALL the time, they soon went to freezer camp

Really hard to be sneaky when they have to be in a brooder with a heat source...hey! You mean he would notice?
You cant have them on the kitchen table for weeks before he says, "where did these come from?" and you can say, "those have BEEN here"...and roll your eyes?
not that I have done any of that of course..

I've got to wake Granny in a half hour, which is at least 3 hours before her normal wakeup time. She has an appointment for a MRI at 6:45. She has been experiencing quite a lot of pain in her right arm and the doctor feels there is a problem with neck that is the root cause of her discomfort. Once he has the MRI results they can be used as a road map to plot a treatment procedure. Got to keep the old girl going as she is already talking about next year's Chickenstock.
Good morning Opa, hope Granny is fine, just a soar muscle or some thing simple, She is such a sweet heart

Welcome city chick
RAIN Yeah!!!! most of the night and still coming down a nice gentle rain the kind that soaks in,
now the price of hey will most likely go back down, and I bought 6 bales last night....2 on Monday were $3.50, yesterday he had it raised to $5...normally he sells for $2.50 Oh well, I really like his hay it is very grassy and I can use it in the nest boxes as well as on the floor, they like to peck through and eat the grasses and seed in winter.
