    my dad, when he was younger, had a White Leghorn roo named The Teaberry Shuffle. The reason he was called that was because he would "dance" toward my dad and his siblings before attacking them. My dad said that The Teaberry Shuffle was so nasty, he and his sisters and his brother would hide behind a tree while waiting for the school bus so that The Teaberry Shuffle wouldn't see them.

    Then eventually, a fox came by and it was all over.

    Golden Polish. Spike! We rehomed him at a swap to a family that assured us they had no small children and could handle him.

    I had a big Barred Rock rooster named Foghorn. Hated my wife and would hit the fence trying to get to her as she aproached the chicken yard.

    When we went in to collect eggs I would have to keep myself between Foghorn and my young son to keep him from spurring him. If I wasn't viligent he would swing around behind and attack. I would not go in without one of those wire leg catchers. I had used much force with Foghorn and it made him no difference. He attacked my son one day when I had my back turned and I swung around and hit him with a catcher up side his head. Hard. It knocked him down but he got up, shook his head and dropped his wing down a little for another charge. That rooster had no quit in him at all.

    If I was by myself he would circle me but not come into range. It was a standoff each time.

    One day he got out of the fenced run and trapped my neighbors wife in her barn. She had her cell phone and had to call her husband to come rescue her.

    I had to cull poor Foghorn that evening. We loved that rooster though.

    These two decided they would start tag teaming anything - attacking one hen in particular, and then made the fatal mistake of running at my 2 y/o. That was The End.

    Here they are in the Green Mile.


    I still have two roosters to 11 hens now, but once these two hooligans were taken out of the picture, peace reigned o'er the coop.

    2 come to mind. The first was a porcelian D'Uccle roo who was ruthless. He got me once and was penned for a while. One day he was out and my then 3 yr old daughter was standing on the porch when he flew up and got her right in the face. Thankfully missed her eye and no scar. He was dead less than 30 min later. I couldn't catch him, so I shot him.
    2nd one was a buff rock that I had to hit in the head with a shovel to get him away from me. His name after that was Bobble Head because of the twitch he developed. He was destined for the stew pot soon after. I will not keep a mean roo around. Not with 4 kids.....
