Does anyone know if green leg hatch roosters are agressive?
post #2 of 38

So are you asking if a roo with green legs can be agressive?  

I have Bantam welsummers, Bantam Cuckoo Marans, Bantam Wc black polish, Bantam Olive eggers, MGB, LF Welsummers, BCM, BLRW, LF Buff and Golden Laced polish, LF Sumatras, Bantam Sumatras, d'anvers, CCL, Wild type turkeys RioxEastern, Ringneck pheasants blacks, buff, Bobwhite Quail, Chukars  and bunch of free range birds

My bet Rooster239 is referring to green-legged Hatch American Games.  If so, then keep only one rooster and you will do fine.  My birds are compared to Hatch and the roosters are very good birds when kept singly.  I use them to train kids and will be doing so next week.  They train much better than any production or ornamental breeds I have had experience with.

Trick question there rooster239.  I can trust mine until they are about 8 months, once in a while to 10 months.  By 8 months I recommend you pen him isolated from others or get rid of him or all other adult roosters.  He should do fine with hens and pullets.  You can also rear young roosters not game under him but also get them out by time they are 8 months so you can keep your Hatch bird in good feather.

Do you think he will be aggresive since he is a game ? I mean right now he is super shy

He will not be more aggressive, rather he will not stop being so once he starts.  Until then he may be at lower end of pecking order.  I can free-range mine with American Dominiques and the doms will be boss until the games are fully in adult feather, then I must separate the games from doms and each other.

I noticed you posted a while back about what appears to be a cock with buggered up feet.  If you still got him or others you need to make to birds can't get to each other even through wire pen.
