Hi All, we are rehoming our rooster today. My kids are absolutly terrified of him. What is the best way to raise a rooster so that the kids will be comfortable with him. do I need to start with chicks or maybe a really young roo. My flock free rangers in our huge backyard, fenced in by a wood fence, so a rooster would be a good idea to protect the hens. We have numerous hawks around here. What do some of the chicken experts out there think?
