    My grandma says that old hens and roos make great chicken and dumplings, or chicken noodle soup.

    You might want to do a little research on mean roos and try to fix the problem before you eat him. I have a young roo who is too "big for his britches". He came at me twice yesterday. I did not back down and help him down until he stopped flailing and sqwaking. I read this on one of the other threads from this site. He has not come at me again. I will continue to show him who is boss and if he continues this behavior, he will end up in the stew pot. I do want to give him a chance, though. He is doing his job protecting the hens. But if he continues, I may not have a choice.

    Good luck with your roo! [​IMG]

    Aren't Cornish X's meat-birds that are supposed to be eaten anyway? It's not like he's a breed that you could keep for a continuted flock.

    It's rare that they have the ability to attack; they're usually too heavy and wheezy! Are you sure he's not something else? Mine could not even think about jumping.

    Plan B - 1 Mean Roo = 1 Nice Dinner

    Plan A - Try to show him whose boss maybe by holding him upside down once or twice, but there is always plan B!! [​IMG]
