    If he's aggressive to humans, I'd add him by way of the crock pot...

    A human aggressive rooster is a bad rooster. I'd cull him if he's going after people. Too many good roosters ISO a home because of ordinances, overcrowding, etc to keep one around that has a terrible attitude.

    If you're set on adding him. Build a small isolation coop where he can see the hens but not touch him and slowly integrate him over a few weeks....

    And I would definitely never breed from him. To a certain extent temperament is heredity and there are people working hard to breed better tempered roosters by not raising progeny from the bad ones.

    Why would you want to give an aggressive rooster to your grandmother?

    You don't have to cull aggressive roosters just spend more time with them and be patient

    Wait until your grandma goes into the kitchen to make cookies, then hide the aggressive rooster in her closet for a lovely surprise. Let us know how it works out for her.
