    Has anyone had any success with an amercauna rooster being nice? Not being over agressive? I have a four month old americauna cock who is starting to crow and mature and I want to know what type of temperment this breed is supposed to be. Should I be worried?

    I had an Ameraucana rooster, and he was really nice. He respected my space, and he sort of cooed to the ladies......very nice.

    Check out the Ameracauna section in the "Breeds and Genetics" - there is the sweetest pic there of an Am. roo w/his wings over his hen & chicks. I asked the same question there & several people said their roos were nice. After several really bad experiences w/other breeds, I have a 4 month old Ameracauna roo I just put out with the main flock & so far, so good. He has been very nice since birth & I am hoping he continues to be. I know all of my hens are nice and easygoing, not aggressive to the others or to each other.
