    I have been a chicken mommy for about 2 1/5 years now. I love my chickens! Earlier this year, we decided to add a rooster. Turns out he is a Rhode Island Red and very aggressive. Now I can't even enjoy my chickies because he is so mean. I am working on taming him a bit, but it is a slow process.

    I recently found that I like gardening. I would like to get to the point where I can "recycle". I mean like grow my own veges and share with the chickens. I have been surfing this site and decided to become a member. There is a lot of good info here!

  7. Hi and welcome to BYC! Glad you decided to join our happy flock. How old is your rooster? You might want to separate him from your hens for awhile and hope he might adjust better. Also, there is a gardening thread for those of us who grow vegetables and flowers. You are always welcome to join us.:frow
