I had bought 25 pullets (Barred rocks) and they threw an extra one in. Of course, (this one was a rooster..didn't know). At the beginning I thought I found a nice little hen that maybe I could make a pet of. This chick would always come to me and I would hold it, feed it and let it outside in the grass with me. As it become older, I realized it was a beautiful rooster. I called it Baby when I thought it was a hen......changed it to Babe Ruth. It was very good with my hens, put it started attacking me, my mother, and my grandkids. I did everything I learned to do here on the forum to try to change his behavior. I finally was attacked for the last time and he scratched me up a good one. He is in the freezer. I love having a rooster...they are protective of the flock and add beauty to the barnyard. Should I have not allowed him not to be afraid of me? I know some of you have nice birds. What did you do or should I have done different?
