In the Brooder
- Jun 16, 2009
I have a six week old cockerel that I am trying to rehome. (where I live, I can't have roosters) So far, all of the people interested in him tell me that they need a friendly roo because the last one they had "turned mean". My little guy is very tame and has been handled a lot and is very sweet. He is also not at the top of the pecking order in the group of chicks (all the same age) and doesn't bully any of the chicks. I think he would be a nice mannered rooster when he matures based on how he is now, but I am concerned about him being adopted then "turning mean". I read somewhere on here that cockerels that are raised with a lot of handling turn into dominant roosters when the hormones develop and attack people. Is this true? Is there hope for my little roo?
