This was a rooster that we did not raise as a pet and I always was dominate over him. He's increasingly more cocky and younger. Anyways, we have decided to not keep him. I just don't think rooster's and kids mix. The only thing my 4 year old did was play with his bike around the rooster. I should have known. He somewhat challenged me today and I held my ground but also had my baby in the carrier....so I can't risk her. Nonetheless, he gave in with me. I show no fear with him but I can tell you I ran after him with a weapon when he attacked my son. Luckily, nothing happenned and the rooster does not have spurs. But this is my first experience with hens and a rooster with my kids. I don't want them to be scared of them. Do some roosters just get mean? I have only seen nice roosters at the zoo and even there I am not so sure. Is it his breeding? He is a Golden Laced Wyandotte from Meyer Hatchery.
