    My son's rooster, Rudy, was killed earlier this week by two large nasty dogs. We would like another rooster, but are unsure the best breed. Rudy was a mixed breed. I'd like a roo that is not aggressive toward people or pets. Any suggestions?

    There is not set "best" breed of rooster. It all depends on the individual birds. Within a breed, their can be very sweet roosters and very mean roosters. However, some breeds, like Rhode Island Reds, seem to have a higher number of mean roosters than nice ones. It might be a good idea for you to get a bantam rooster, as they aren't as dangerous. Silkies are especially good (though I've never had one myself). Any rooster can become mean and dominant.
