Yep. We had a Welsummer rooster who was flighty and gave me all kinds of trouble. He would NOT stay out of my garden. We eventually got rid of him, but not before hatching some of his chicks. The cockerels were just like him. I didn't even have a garden this winter, but they would hope the fence just to get to the grass on the other side. Stewpot specials, every one.
About your BLRW cockerels, have you noticed that the males are clumsy breeders or is it just ours? It's almost like they are so big that they can't keep their balance. Do you trim feathers for fertility purposes? I have heard that some do that and am trying to decide if we need to. this is our first year with them.
I'm putting a couple silkie eggs in my incubator next. I am anticipating fertility problems there. I had nothing but problems with them last year... Then, I lost my silkie rooster to a giant snake. I did hatch ONE silkie chick out of a whole bunch of eggs. It turned out to be another blue rooster. So this year, we will try again. I hope I don't have to trim butt fluff.
ETA: I haven't noticed that they are especially clumsy breeders. The young ones are, but they figure it out eventually. I very rarely see my rooster mate though. Perhaps he IS clumsy and also embarrassed.
