Are most Polish roosters mean????

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 

I have been reading on here and other sites  Do Polish roosters tend to be meaner than regular breeds of chickens ,???? or is aggression built into crested breeds? or does it depend on the rooster itself?

No I have never heard of a mean polish roo, but with all breeds, it is possible to get a mean one every now & then.

I have heard  this, mostly about Sultans and Crevecure roosters, having means streaks but not polish. Again it's possible.

I have never had a mean polish roo.  Stupid, yes.  Mean, no.

And usually the stupid goes away when they get a haircut.

Nope no creves here yet, but looking.
I am thinking of getting some from the person in GA. if not,  from a friend in OH. they had some of the best in the whole U.S.
I raise mainly laced polish & WCrested polish. I am looking into houdans & Creves soon.

Had sultans also they were not as WOW as the rest in my opinion.

I have a silver polish crested roo, we named Speedbump.  He was the smallest chick we had and seemed to be forever the last chicken to do anything.  When he finally found his stride he was great, a little skittish (always running the other way when we throw treats down) but docile when we handle him; not the best at protecting the girls and oft times a little rough with them when he does his roosterly duties but he is never aggressive with us.  Now, my other roos...well that's another matter.big_smile

I have a polish roo in with one polish hen and a bunch of bantam hens and he cut me up about 4 weeks ago.  The first night I thought it might be a fluke and didn't worry about it.  Didn't even think about it again until the next night when I had one foot off the ground and he attacked the shin of the foot I was standing on.  About 5 minutes later, he was without spurs.  Not saying all polishes or all of any breed are mean, but this polish roo is mean.

I never thought about cutting the feathers back!  OMG, this would probably fix some of his quirkiness.  [Insert sheepish grin]
