    So I have decided my white crested blue polish rooster is gonna have to go. Hes just to aggressive toward me and some of the hens. I would get another rooster but are limit is one. He was my favorite one and its sad but I cant have aggression like that in my coop.

    If you like him and have an interest, you might try the techniques posted on BYC for breaking rooster aggression. Works for some and worked like a charm for mine but I stopped the aggression immediately rather than letting it go on. Like anything, takes a bit of will, skill, and persistence.

    Forgot to add: Mine was also very violent when he first started mating but that has completely changed over the course of two months a he and the pullets have figured out what they are doing. Now things are very harmonious. I was ready to get rid of him the first day I heard pullets screaming and found lots of feathers, but then I did some research and many people say their roos chill out.
