    Quote:Only had two and the longest I kept one was 7 months. Neither showed that it had an aggressive bone in its body while with me. The first one (Buster The Chick Magnet, whose picture is to the left) I gave away along with the flock when I moved to Maine and the latest one I gave away this summer, only because he violated our" don't ask, don't tell" policy of gender issues of the chicken variety. (He told.)

    If and when I move to a larger piece of heaven, I'll keep a Chanty roo or two.

    They are very touchy, the rooster i had to deal with would not let his girls eat properly i.e. he was a pig, if you came near the hens he went after you if you turned your back on him watch out, he even drew blood. he's now in the soup pot. I generaly don't have problems with my roosters.
