SC, The jury decided to give you a reprieve from the Band or emasculator for the time being. Little history on where I came from, Was born on a gamefowl farm and spent several year with them. Never been a Rooster born that can not be gentled down to where he will not try and hit you. Will agree that some of the aggressive personality is heredity . The very worst thing to do is try an fight back with the rooster by kicking them, it will only make them worse. A lot of what causes this is they are nervous. Catch the mean Rooster up and hold him under the left arm and take the right hand and start rubbing under the head. If he is pecking you , put the thumb on one side of the head and the fingers on the other side of the head. Wet your finger and rub under the lower beak in a downward motion. More in a minute.
