One of our roosters was caught picking on our dog the other day and just being mean... plus we'd noticed he hasn't been very nice to the hens either. Our head rooster is a lot better with them. We decided this particular rooster was too dumb for his own good (seriously? attacking a lab/shepherd mix? bad idea... luckily we've got our dog trained fairly well not to eat him). This was one of the first chickens we got this past Spring, so we expected it to be somewhat emotional, but it really wasn't that bad. He is in our refrigerator right now. I think I read on here to it sit in the fridge for a couple of days before freezing or cooking, is that right?
