    Hello. im goin to tell u how to make a mean rooster nice! this may be some reeleef to some of u folks out there!

    step 1: calculate how many hens are in the same pen with the rooster.

    step 2: Seperate some of the hens from the rooster and keep them in another pen. !!notice!! ROOSTERS R MOR MEAN WITH MORE HENS HE HAS TO GAURD!! its a protection thing

    step 3: some of u may not like it but handel the rooster every day, twice a day, for about 5 - 10 minutes.

    step 4: if u are in there coop and he starts crowing or he looks like he is sizing u up for a fight, immediatly scoop him up. when ur handeling the rooster at any time, use a comforting voice. dont yell at him or anything or that cood make him meaner.

    step 5: sit back and watch ur NICE rooster get kicked back....[​IMG]

    I did not know that more hens were worse, I would have thought it would be better since he would be busier.

    Interesting info. Thanks!

    If all else fails you can always treat him to a nice hot bath with garlic, onions, and a bay leaf added....
