    I would appreciate anyone who can post a lesson from their own experience on "How to Raise a Nice Rooster". I am looking for practical advice for those who ended up with a cockerel or two mixed in with the pullets they paid for. I have two 8 week old EE boys, and my theory is I am better off starting earlier on proactive training than later after problems are apparent! I can already tell that personality will be a dominating factor, but like dog training I am sure there are some great guidelines to follow for the young pups/chicks.

    My opinion? Feed, water and provide protection from the elements and predators for your baby roo, but don't handle him any more than necessary.
