I thought I was safe now from this happening, but apparently not. My big, gorgeous, Welsummer attacked my daughter's tiny little banty cochin. Much blood, from what I can tell all from comb and wattle. he's eating and drinking and spending the night in the dog crate in the garage. The other tiny banty boy also had a spot or two of blood on his wattle, but seemed to have gotten off easy. My first thought is that someone has to go. :-( I can't get rid of her banty, he is truly a pet. I hate to get rid of my Welsummer...he's stunningly beautiful, big, and with people, very gentle, he comes up to us and wants treats from our hands. Besides which, our egg customers like that the eggs are fertilized (apparently they are easier to digest??). I really don't want to sell him to the first person who comes along, I know he has to go, but not to a dinner pot. He'd make some gorgeous babies one of these days. So I do have a very large wire run type that he can be banished to until I decide his fate. My question is.. are the two banty roos eventually going to fight each other? If so, then getting rid of Rusty (the Welsummer) won't fix the problem. Here is a far out thought... what if I found someone who could caponize the two banty roos... would that stop the attacks? they are approx 9-10 months old, is it too late to make them less manly? I would be willing to spend the money to take them to the vet and have it done IF I were sure it would work. Any opinions?
