    Have some questions regarding roosters. Is there any particular breed that the roosters are nicer, and which breeds tend to be meaner? Or does it just depend? Also, are there certain breeds that tend to be more noisy than others? If so which breeds tend to be more quiet, and which ones tend to be the noiser ones.

    My banty rooster is very nice. He is a noisy little thing, but he's not mean at all, lets you pick him up all the time.

    I have a Lakenvelder rooster that is pretty mean. He'd be really mean if he wasn't lame. He'll spur you out of the blue or try to jump on your head when your bent over in the coop. But he's so clumsy (he's got bent toes and a bad hip-genetic problem I think) he doesn't connect too good.

    I think it really just depends on the rooster, rather than the breed. All ours are nice (we have eight, all different)...and they are all about equally noisy...the ones lower down the pecking order are quieter.

    I guess it depends. My 2 silkie roos are sweet. My other silkie roo tries to attack me every chance he gets. No problems on the 4 buff orp roos though. They seem to be very sweet [​IMG]
