    Are the roos all really agressive and loud or am I just blessed with the jerkiest sebright roo in the land? I love how pretty he is but I honestly despise him...and want to get rid of him!

    I had one that I did not raise and he was very feisty and aggressive with anyone but me, took me months to win him over. I have another(his son) that I raised and he is my baby but doesn't like anyone but me and is much more uptight than my silkies or japanese roos. He also crows more and louder than anyone. I love my Danny boy but will not get anymore sebrights, even the girls are more nervous.

    I bought a Sebright roo about 7 months ago that is semi aggressive him and his ladies have several chicks now 2 seperate clutches, two of the three older sons are also semi aggresive, I think it may be a sebright thing.

    It has been my experience that bantam roosters are more aggressive than large fowl. Must be that "small man complex".

    He hasnt hurt anyone, but he attacks all of us and isnt scared of anyone or anything. And he crows...and crows...and crows again to make sure we heard him that time. And he started fighting last week with my bantam cochin roo --both we a bloody mess when I got home so are seperated now --and with my huge white rock and BO roos...he's just a pain. Haha I should name him Danny Boy...that was my ex hubby's name and he had little man syndrome too...

    I think all my sebrights are pullets but none of my bantam roos have been truly agressive. I did have one really aggressive bantam EE hen who lost her head and a questionable bantam EE roo from the same line who also lost his head. Other than that my Japanese bantams are the nicest roos and have never shown aggression toward anyone. The bantam EE roo I kept will crow and carry on when someone gets near his hens but has never attacked in any way. My bantam cochin was unremarkable, usually missed as he did his own thing in the back of the coop or hidden away outside, and eventually I sold him. The dutch bantams I got from a friend are like my japs and completely nonagressive. The only roos out of all my bantams that I have or have had that could be considered at all aggressive are my seramas and they still don't really attack me. They just beat each other up.

    Don't know about the roos but my hen demands to be held and carried around...very sweet.
