    How is his temperament? Right now he is actually sweeter than my pullets, but curious of that changes as they get older.

    He was very loving as a young one. Now he just wants to do his job and protect his girls. He's vey good at warning of hawks etc in the area. I never turn my back on him though. . nor would I with any rooster lol
