Tomorrow my nasty rooster is going to a new home...and no, not in the freezer. The person who is taking him knows he has been aggressive, and wants to give him a chance to free-range with his flock of chickens. I am hoping once my roo (9 months old) is in charge of his own flock, maybe his hormones will let him settle down a bit-- up till now he hasn't had any real flock interaction. He is aggressive around "his" territory (coop and run)...usually worst when I go to put him back in the coop. Sometimes he is fine, but when he attacks, nothing seems to deter him...I kick him with my huge boots and he just comes back for more. If I am able to pick him up, he is very docile...problem is catching him Anyway, I have been honest about his aggression (he isnt old enough to do any serious serious damage with his spurs yet), but I still feel guilty about giving him to someone. I confess I am scared of him! Maybe a change of scenery will calm him down, as he won't be in HIS territory right away...at least not till he gets settled in. Does anyone have suggestions for how this new owner can give him the best chance to not resume his nasty habits? Do you recommend he try to pick him up and carry him around to show him he is boss right off the bat? Or push him around a bit to put him in his place? Or should I just suggest he carry a big stick? It will help ease my guilt feeling to be able to give some advice at least. Thanks!
