    Do Black Australorps roosters have an aggression problem? I had one who was really mean and attacked people. Well he's in the freezer now. But I have a young one and want to know if it was just my last bird or do most roos of that breed struggle with that problem?

    I have several, and they're not mean at all. But I make a habit of visiting the coop at night to pick them up and pet them. I just hold them until they stop struggling so they'll know who's the boss!

    I have 4 and I am in their coop daily and they have never been aggressive. They are 6 months old. They still have a lot of room to become aggressive I guess, but hasn't shown any aggression so far.

    I love my boys.

    Yeah, I love the boy I have and don't want him to turn out like his Dad.
