I just recently got into the chicken buisness. I started with 4 ees 14 rir and some bantams. All I have got are like pets even the rir roo. Well about a week ago I was with a friend at one of his uncles houses and the man was killing these roos one after another. I ran out there to see what was going on and he said it was his fighting birds. He said the birds where not what he expected them to be and couldn't use them. I told him I would take the rest if he would let me have them. O and to let yall know I don't believe in fighting roosters. Anyways once i got them home i realized that i couldn't put them together and had to seperate each one. So I just put them on some string like he had them and built them all little houses. Lot cheaper than building 15 pens. Now that they feel at home every time I go out to feed or water them they attack me. I mean attack to. stick spurs in a number of times and they bite like no other bird Ive touched. The draw blood and take out chunks. I been tryn to hand feed them and hold them every day since i trimmed there spurs. They seem to be getting meaner. I should have just let the guy finish the job I guess. Is there anyway to calm them down. I have children to worry about. or should I just get rid of them?
