    I've only had two of them, but didn't have problems with either--lost one to a hawk while he was protecting his girls.

    I had a Silver Laced Wyandotte roo 4 years ago. We had to put him down because he drew blood on my youngest child and tried to kill me. We are always gentle with our animals and I have no idea why he changed into a monster.

    It took me 4 years to want chickens again. Here I am now, with 77![​IMG]

    I will NEVER again have any Wyandotte.

    mine have all been nice but hatchery stock may not be as nice. I had buff ops hatchery stock and that rooster will aweful but I hear the breed is very gentle. try to get one from a breeder if you are looking for non aggressive.
