    He may need to be put in the pot.
    If he is getting really aggressive at that age, you may not have any choice, unless you re-home him.
    Has he gotten aggressive toward you or your family?
    What kind of Roo...?

    My way of dealing with any nasty aggressive roo is buh bye time. If he is that aggressive at 3 months old its going to get much worse-

    Is he aggressive, or is he trying to breed them? If he is truly aggressive, off with his head. If he is trying to breed them, separate him away from them until they are laying and more willing to breed.

    I have 2 like that. They are attacking my poor lame turkey. These roosters are only about 4 months old and have just learned to crow, but they are not holding back with this poor turkey who is twice their size. They're going to new homes Monday. I hate to give up on them at such an early age, but I really don't want any of the others hurt. Tell me I'm right...even if I'm sure I can save the world from itself.[​IMG]

    younger cockerels sometimes mock fight with older hens to established hierarchy..... the hens usually puts them in their place quickly.....
