    I saw some at a local farm store 2 weeks ago i went back a few days ago and all of them were still there! I have heard they are aggressive is that why people aren't buying them?

    New Hampshires have RIR in their breeding. So, they may be a bit more prone to aggression. I've heard that the heritage RIR do not have this behavior flaw.
