    Quote:I agree! I had a Barred Rock roo, never again...meanest thing on the planet. He would attack my children! Mean roos are stew for sure, and you never want to breed a mean roo and pass on that on to chicks.

    Well, barred rocks are a breed that just tends to be mean, which is a behavior that must be corrected right away if you want peace. They can be really, really nice, and great roosters if handled correctly though. One of my best roosters ever was a barred rock cross.

    I would suggest having your wife hold the rooster and make sure he knows she's the dominant one. Good luck! [​IMG]

    On the MN prairie.
    I would suggest having your wife hold the rooster long enough to get it plucked, gutted, and in the crockpot with broth and seasoning. Then, go find a nice rooster who needs a good home. There are plenty of them out there. I had a barred rock rooster. Once.
