    I have a roo that has become very aggresive and actually chases and attacks, anyone trying to leave the coop. We had to cut off his spurs. Hubby has to hang him up with a chicken picker upper he made, just so we can go in and retrieve the eggs. Is it time for the freezer or is this normal for a roo?

    I would never keep an aggressive rooster. Life is much better now that my bad boy is gone. It's not unusual for a rooster to be that way, he is doing his "job" but honestly it's not worth it. There are plenty of good roosters that don't attack or make your fearful to go outside. I would try to find a good one and ditch the bad one.

    Yep, I think dumplings is the way to go for that guy. There are nice roosters out there who do not attack and will let you get eggs no problem. Not all are mean.

    SilkieChicken said it quite well in another post: Ninja roos make good stews.

    My young roo, 17 wks, began getting a little challenging toward me and I immediately put to use the stuff RoosterRed posted about handling roos. He's a much better behaved roo now. I even told him, (the roo) I love you very much, have since I saw you hatch, but I will eat you, you will be dinner if you don't be a sweet roo.

    Hey, I said that, LOL! Seriously, it's really true. I've had too many awesome, sweet roosters in my time owning chickens that I know there is no reason to own an aggressive one.​

    I had a girl I work with offer me a mean roo today - sounded close to the behavior this one is doing. I told her he would go in a pot at my house. I can't/won't have any animal that I raise/feed attack me or more importantly my children.
