So as it turns out, one of my "guaranteed female" chicks turned out to be a rooster. He had been really sweet up until about 2-3 weeks ago when he randomly started attacking people. He's about 6 months old now and is still sweet most of the time - he likes to be snuggled and will eat out of my hand - but his attacking is really starting to hurt. We've been picking him up and just carrying him around when he starts to attack, which had been calming him down, but tonight when my husband picked him up he latched onto his finger, wouldn't let go and drew blood He seems to be escalating. Is there anything we can do to fix this behavior? I'm really attached to him (not to mention he's a really pretty roo) and I'm a vegetarian so cooking him isn't an option. Has anyone ever neutered a rooster, and if so, did it help?
