    If I'm understanding right ... the victim was pecking you and you BF??? If so maybe he was still in protection mode. Wait a few days, if he doesn't calm down... freezer camp [​IMG]

    NanaWendy's right - watch him for the next few days and if he is still showing aggression, - freezer camp!

    A simple and concise answer is yes. He was still ticked about the other rooster invading his territory. Sadly enough, once triggered this can become routine behavior. Has he calmed down today?

    "Freezer camp" refers to killing the rooster and preparing him for the freezer. [​IMG] Personally, I don't think it's time for that yet unless the behavior escalates.
