    We have a 15 month old Black Astralop Rooster named Fred (we thought he was a she ie. because he/she looked like the penguin Gloria from Happy Feet when it was little). Anyway Fred is a very mean rooster that has 11 hens (4 Reds, 4 Black Sexlinks and 3 Asutralops) to watch over. When he was about 9 months he tried to spur my 6 year old daughter and has come after me several times. The only way I go in there now is with a bat or umbrella. My husband had no problems with him until about a month ago. Now he is just a hateful mean rooster. We recently got another hen from someone who couldn't keep her and when one of our hens goes after her he does too. He needs to go! Any ideas?
