We are new to chickens and recently made the mistake of assuming "males for warmth" meant a couple, not 10. Beginners mistake. So we are now overrun with New Hampshire roos that will inevitably become dinner. I was thinking about keeping two at most. My questions are: Is this a good breed of roo? But, more importantly .... there is one that is way bigger than the rest that is very protective of the girls. He puts himself between me and them and bites the tar out of me! All of my girls are tame, loving and come running to be held so its not like I'm patronizing them. He just honestly hates me petting and holding them. They will free range when they grow up a little so I'm wondering if an over protective roo would be a good thing, or should he be the first on the chopping block? *****By the way he is only 8 weeks old, has drawn blood and is very persistent.
