Do most cocks eventually end up attacking children even when they seem gentle in the beginning?
I have heard of roos who end up flogging kids when the roos reach maturity. I have heard of some people who've had good luck with having the kids swat them with a broom when they attack and some for whom that did not work.
I don't know if I'd say "most" of them, but it does happen quite frequently according to the posts I see on here.
Hi! I am having the same problem. My rooster tried to kill my youngins. I had to separate them. Will try to put them back together when the rooster is matured a little. He is 4 and a half months old. My youngins are 3 months old. Hopefully he stops doing that or he is bye bye. O! I mis read thought you meant young chicks. heehee oh well!
