    Every rooster has his own personality and how they are raised can affect their behaviors, so it's hard to say whether the rooster you get will be nice or not based on his breed. Lighter breed roosters tend to be more busy and heavier breeds are a bit more docile. Marans fall in the middle.

    I find ignoring the roosters as they grow and keeping them slightly wary of you can help. Don't hand feed them or over handle them. Make them get out of the way of you, and don't be afraid to round them up and pen them as they sexually mature if they are being too rough with the hens. Every breed I have tried has never become aggressive with me, so I believe it's in the raising more than it's what breed it is.
