    This lil dude is being rude! Scareing and scaring younger flock members...im not sure his breed tho. I have 2 of them that are not high in the pecking order and are starting to bully younger birds. If they are a hard to find breed i will seperate them and find them girlfriends. If they are just common jerks, into the pot they go! Thanks for the input.

    To my untrained eye he looks like a legbar rooster. I could be wrong as I know nothing of where you got him or what he was sold to you as.

    Well we bought some (as we like to call)"fancy" birds from a local "fancy" breeder. An assortment of 16 chicks. We love them all and if the problems keep up will prob sell the poor hormonal fool. Since then weve aquired 50 new hamps and buckeye pullets. The boss of the flock tries to keep him in check but like teenagers are hes acting out and others are getting hurt. Any advice??
