    For the past 2 months or so, Mo has been attacking me when I got eggs or when I entered his yard. It's been getting worse and this morning he got me good and spurred my leg. I ignored him and pushed him away but when I went to give them food, he went towards my face. When I turned to walk away he jumped up and hit me in the middle of my back.
    So, I took him to work, sedated him and put him to sleep. It sucks but it's better that way. I've had him since he was a chick and couldn't give him away b/c I didn't want him to go badly.....I was attached to him.

    Thanks ya'll for the kind words. I got him last summer from someone on here. He wasn't even a year old yet. My 2 black australorp hens seem quite happy today with him not hounding them non stop. Now I'm wondering if I can introduce them to my OEGB or maybe my cochin bantams when they get bigger???? The girls are very laid back. Hmmm, don't know maybe I'll do a test run eventually and see what happens. I just know there will be no more standard roos here.
