Well I have been hoping it wouldn't come to this but I was out in the coop making sure my broody was back on her nest after her morning excursion, turned my back to the others and smack right on my heal this little bantam roo nailed me. I turned and yelled and he backed off. I was hoping to find a home for a couple of my roos but he may be in the cooker instead. Are bantam roo's even worth eating? I currently have 5 roos for about 30 hens. The RIR is going to his new home in the next couple weeks, and that leaves 3 mottled bantam cochin roos, and a silkie roo (who has shown no interest in crowing, or the ladies, maybe he isn't a he). Anyhow any suggestions or should he go to the cooker. I know that the roo's protect their girls but I have kids and I don't want to be afraid to turn my back to him in the coop.
