I have two roosters. They were hatched the same day (7 months ago) and are the same breed (silkies). My "beta" roo, Mac, is totally docile. I don't even think about where he is because he has never made a single aggressive move toward me. My alpha roo, though, has absolutely earned his name--Roosifer. If my husband or kids walk into the run, he goes straight for them, jumping at them with his feet and flogging them. He and I usually have an uneasy understanding about who is in charge, but every so often he gets a wild feather up his butt and comes after me for no reason at all. He's a great roo to the girls, but I may end up getting rid of him because of how he acts towards us. My question is, if I DO get rid of him, what are the chances that Mac will start acting like a butthead in his place? Are the odds good that he will stay mellow like he is now, or will he step up in his alpha role and come after me, too? I like my little silkie roos and my neighbors don't mind them since they aren't very loud. I want to keep them, but I'm not going to live life worrying about my family or me being attacked when we go in the run. Thoughts from those of you who have been there?
