    Please help
    I have a beautiful ameraucana roo about 4 months old. He has just started doing what roosters do to the hens, but he is extreamly ruff, and I think has killed 2 of my hens.
    Any ideas. thanks.

    I will repeat what I have read posted here - have a good dinner and get new rooster.

    Eating him would be my last option. Hoping to reform him.

    I think we all prefer reform, but a bully is always a bully. Unfortunately
