A lot of people put Roosters in chicken stew if they are mean. Roos can be tamed and there are several ways that DO work. 1. Pick up the Rooster and hold him. Then grab his comb and pull his head so his beak is touching his chest. Hole him like that for about 10 seconds than let him go. That is what they do to each other to show dominance. 2. Grab the rooster and lay him on his back on the ground until he stops struggling and won't get up when you leave. 3. Try to approach slowly. They can get spooked and fear for their hens and attack. Hope this helps!
