The rooster, beautiful, a hen protector, and an alarm clock. I have raised many roosters in my life and they seem to have similar and total opposite personalities. I have had ones that protected the flock and loved the girls but, saw me as a threat and would always attack me. It didn't matter if it was a bantam or a full sized rooster it scared the heck out of me. the roosters that didn't change after long training to try to make them more social ended up in the crock pot. there were roosters that didn't mind me and saw me as part of the flock, and they protected, cared for, and did their job all well with out attacking me. We even had a rooster that never crowed which was very nice. We also had a rooster who went broody and hatched out his own chicks and believe me he was a rooster. the roosters are apart of the family but when they attack its hard but sometimes they have to go unless you can protect your self and no offense to anyone but the last roost that attacked me went flying in the air. If you have any information about your roosters please tell how their personality was or is today and how to dealt with it. And any funny stories would be nice, Thank you!
