The more I read about roosters, the more I am glad we don't have any, anymore. Yes they are good looking to have around, protect their ladies, but I don't want the noise, attacks, 24/7 mating. Oh and did I mention the crowing at evening, morning, mid-morning, noon, early afternoon, afternoon, 2 AM, 3 AM, 4 AM and on! [/quote roosters arent that bad. i have somebreally nice ones. Just when i put two together they dont get along, now if they gree up together that would be different. my brahma is the only mean rooster i have. he attacks when i mess with the hens or if i am too close. but hebis slowly figuring out that when he attacks me i push him with my foot or throw something near him and it just scares hom off. yesterday i was able to go in the coop catch one of the girls and he didnt do anything. i couldnt believe it. I hardly ever see my roos mating but the eggs are fertile. I love the crowing. i cant hear it from mu house though.
