    I have an issue I need to look after and need a little advice.

    I have a 11 week old cockerel that I really know what he was till a week or so ago that has just over night gotten very bossy. He pecks everyone his sisters and brother. Now he get to the feeder and run everybody else off and eats by himself and that get nothing. I've started separating him from the others but as soon as he's back with um he's back to the same ways.

    Should I just feed him out and fry him or is this just a passing thing? [​IMG]

    It wasn't a passing thing with the mean roo I had. The older he got te worse it got so, he went to freezer camp. Just my exp. and 2 cents.

    Have you ever raised a teen aged boy? If his genetics are good he and you will survive this phase. If not he will make a wonderful fryer.
