Flashback - as a kid (trust me in that was a LONG time ago) I had a Big Red. He was ferociously human aggressive with every one but me.

Yeah, 'Rosie' is a cockerel - hopefully of a more mellow nature.

If he is mean probably eat him. If he stays a nice boy he will have 5 hens to care for. We have three seven week old pullets, Ameraucana, black australop and barred Plymouth rock and two three week old ideal 236

ok. I am vegan (I always have to be nosy and ask what's gonna happen to little cockerels) so, hopefully, he's a nice boy.

Vegan? How did you get into chicken ... Now I'm niosy

I rescue most, but my Brahma chicks I got from a man who breeds them (he lives down the street and I know him) and with my Ex-battery hens, I ask the farmers if there are any spent hens I could have, and some farmers were actually quite nice, some were more grumpy.
