    It is a shame but when they are mean they need to go. I had one like that too that we just couldnt connect with.

    Wouldn't a Leghorn/RIR cross be a sexlink?

    Oh, and since RIR roos are supposed to be really mean, that is probably where he gets it. Leghorns are just supposed to be really flighty (but mine are little cuddle buns).

    It will depend on the bird and the strain. Since it was a test egg from pure production lines, i'm sure nobody cared about "bad"behavior.

    We use to have the meanest sex link roo that ever lived. He would chase you all over the yard. A fox got him just before the chopping block. Believe, or not, I miss him sometimes though. He was huge and had lots of personality, even if it was mean personality...personality is personality [​IMG] I don't know why we let him hang around as long as we did.
