    I call that breed "chicken soup."

    Just kidding, he's a mixed breed. But really. Eat him. Or let someone else. No good reason to keep a bad cockbird.

    True. There are too many roosters. Many of the excess roosters have nice temperaments. There are too many nice tempered roosters that could use a home to justify keeping the mean ones.

    Thanks he's next on the soup menu, I was just wondering what kind he was, don't want another, just keeping him around till I get a good one, he alerts me to get the BB gun when stray animals get after my hens

    Hmm, look into gamefowl, they are rarely human aggressive but will keep a good watch over your hens. They can't be kept with other cocks though as they'll fight.

    American Games. Any strain really. They're all good birds, very respectful of people and protective of hens. Oriental Games are even better but they can be pricey.
