    Well Rocky has met his demise this morning. He flogged our dd she did not get injured thank god but it scared the crap outta me. I woke up hubby and he took care of the problem. Now we only have one rooHawk and he is scared of us, I want it that way so he will keep his distance. Thanks for the advice all of you gave.

    :)

    That was the best thing to do! Good for you! [​IMG] No need to ever have an evil [​IMG] rooster. There are to many nice ones out there! We have one buff orpington rooster who is so skiddish and runs away [​IMG] whenever we enter the run area or barn. No clue why he is this way. He was this way as a baby chick too. He is even scared of the young pullets and 'squawks' whenever one of them rubs against him, LOL He probably has a home with us forever! [​IMG]

    Thanks Red Barn, Hawk is proving to be a good protector too. I think that is what Rocky's problem was, Hawk used to run and bump Rocky off the hens. And for some reason he took target on hubby. Rock was a big roo too he had to have been near 10#. Now the hens need to get used to Hawk being the main man around town now. No more chasing him away. We gave them a sliced up watermelon after everything and Hawk was finally able to enjoy it without being chased and harrassed[​IMG]. And I have already noticed his crowing has gotten louder, yup he's ready for the postition.[​IMG]
