I have a beautiful little RIR/Buff Orpington cross cockerel.....and im slightly worried about his behaivor. Once again, im afraid I might have fallen into a bad rut with a Cockerel, and soon-to-be Roo..... Anyway, i have heard from alot of people that RIR roosters are known to be very aggressive....and this youngster i have came from a not so well-behaved Buff Orpington roo and a RIR hen..... He is already skittish.....he was a great little baby, but as he gets older, he gets more and more flighty! After you catch him, and he struggles for awhile, he will submit, and is so calm....but he acts terrified of us when we go to pick him up and hold him! Do i just need to start interacting with him more? I am refusing to give up on him. He is my very first baby that i have hatched, and he is the only thing left of my first chicken, the one that started it all.....and I love the gorgeous little thing. Any comments or suggestions?
