    My frizzle roo is about 10 weeks approximately. He has decided he has to harass the other chicks. I have another little roo that is the sweetest thing and scared to death of the frizzle roo. He is so young to be this big of a jerk. What is the deal?

    We have a little frizzle guy too. He keeps all the girls from eating, and i strongly suspect him of doing serious damage to one of his girls, peeling her head. He's about to become frizzle soup.

    Our last chicks, we had 4 boys out of 5 chicks that hatched. One decided it was time to play 'big bad roo' when he was about 12 weeks old and started attacking all his brothers. One roo fought back, but the other two were terrified.

    We separated him with his sister and left the other three together, and all was fine until they were fully grown and able to be re-homed [​IMG]

    We had a black frizzle roo with similar problems, he would attack my 3 year old son, when the roo attacked I got all of my kids together and we'd chase him around the farm yard, then he'd be fine for a couple of weeks, it seemed like an endless cycle, so I gave him away when I sold some hens, bye bye roooooo.
