    I have 3 white leghorn roos, and all 3 are very aggresive. I've tried walking thru them, asserting dominance, tough love, nothing seems to help. What can I do?

    It’s in their DNA to be aggressive. I would say put them on the dinner plate.

    I’m not sure about the BREED, but if roos won’t budge after all that, they might never. Otherwise, I’ll pull up a link that may help...

    How old are they? My cream legbar was two years old before he camled down. We were constantly working with him to stop fighting us when we came out side.

    That's expected from those ages. Three is more than I have really dealt with at once, and from the one I did work with.... I'm so sorry. I contemplated the dinner plate many times.

    Thanks for all the replies, I may just wait it out then and see if they calm down. If not......
