One leghorn roo just bit the toenail off another leghorn roo that doesn't seem as mature.
Quote:They're leghorns.. what do you expect?
WOW, can you separate them to keep him from picking on the injuried one. I think that all breeds will fight with each other roos. It's a guy thing.
Quote:Not so much a roo thing as a breed thing. Leghorns are known to be aggressive. My w mother tended 3,000 when she was younger. She described then as "Mean as snakes" and made me promise I wouldn't get leghorns since I have 2 small kids.
My wellies roos, Orpington, roos and BCM roos get along very well. There is an occasional show down with maybe a single kick. Then it's over and the boys and girls eat dinner together. Never had them draw blood.
