So far I am 2 for 2 in the aggressive bad roo department. The first was a NHR. He had to go @25 weeks because he continued to attack my youngest daughter and scratched up her belly. Rehabilitation was tried, with no success, so we traded him for a laying hen (he ended up in our friend's soup pot). Our next one was a handsome EE. We had to process him this Monday because he attacked my oldest daughter. We tried to rehabilitate him as well with all the advice from this board, to no avail. He also crows all day AND throughout the night (he especialy liked 1-4 in the AM). He also attacked my dog (who is the chickens guardian). What is the deal? Everything I read says there are nice roosters out there. Ones who tend to their flock, protect, and are sweet with their ladies. Is it a 50/50 split for ideal vs. aggressive or is it more heavily weighted on the aggressive side? We will be getting more "pullets" this spring, so more than likely we will end up with another rooster. I hope we get a nice one this time.
