had a horrible experience years ago with a mean rooster. Put me and my husband in the emergency room on 2 separate occasions. got rid of him. had no chickens for 2 years and just started up again. I have one sweet girl who has a neurological issue and cant walk very well (Brownie is her name), I have 6 other mixed young "girls" and I had a silkie frizzle that was mean from the get go who turned out to be a rooster. Breeder took him back, now my favorite "big girl" who is about 5 1/2 months old started cocka doodling this morning when I went to unlock the coop!!! She is one of my favorites, she lets me pet her and from birth always followed me around and was super nosey! now I am worried. I had/have such a fear of roosters but I think I would try to keep him if he stays nice. are there nice roosters out there????? am I dreaming and he will turn mean???? he isn't even the dominate one out of the girls, he seems to let them do what they want and they push him out of the way. LOL I am so trying to not panic when I am in the pen with everyone, because I do like to hang out with them. I am keeping the Brownie separate from everyone in the same pen, she cant get away so quickly if someone wants to bully her. Should I take a chance on "Big Boy"?? or send him back to the breeder.??
