I hatched a new batch of eggs about 8 months ago, I got out 2 hens and 3 roosters. I already had four hens, but decided to expand the flock. I tamed the roosters by holding them every day, “pecking” them with my fingers if they misbehaved, and tossing them around a bit. I would never throw my hens, but I wanted my roosters to behave so I’m a bit more rough with them. I have stopped doing that now because they haven’t given me trouble since a few month ago when they went through a pecking phase. They don’t attack me or anyone in my family and are actually really sweet! 2 of them have started fighting a bit, but it’s only during chicken time durning the evening and the third rooster breaks it up. Is it unusual that my roosters are so sweet, and do I have to worry about them in the future with the hens? Is there a certain time of year when roosters do get aggressive, like mating season? I’m not new to chickens, but I’m very new to roosters.
