    My 13 year old DD went out to feed the chickens and a roo that has been running free in the yard for a few months attacked her going for her face she screamed so my 15 year old son runs out side to see whats going on and the rooster goes for his face. they come and tell me I go out and get my stick a five foot peace of closet pole and put a quick end to this mean old rooster who is now being skinned by the kids who have never done any processing before. Its fun to watch.

    Quote:You made the right decision, kid's first chickens second. A face attacking bird probably can't be fixed, I have had success with violent roosters but in your case, you did the right thing.

    Relieved to find this post was not "what should I do, I really love my roo?". Regardless of the method you did the right thing; don't think the prime consideration was how to get the best meat or dispatch in the most humane matter. There are too many roos in the world to keep one that will harm you or your kids. Enjoy your meal.

    I have grand children that are here almost daily and I'm the only mean roo aloud here. He never felt a thing one hit to the head and it was all over no damaged meat just dinner on next tuesday.
