    Just curious where you got it from. My light brahma bantam males from Ideal Poultry were also very mean, aggressive and fighting from day one. I had some in two different shipments of assorted bantams with the same behavior.

    I got them from a farm store they buys bulk from the 4 major hatchery
    I don't blame him unfortunately I picked poorly and ended up with 17 roosters
    Out of like 35 birds, so the little guy had to fight a lot before I ending up making stew out of the less favorable
    Roosters. We still have too many roostersWe kept 2 bantum roosters , a Ameraucana, barred rock, Silver laced Polish, and another polish.
    Sorry I can't give you exact hatchery. I'll ask them who they used last year and post it if they remember
