    Do you really need him/his blood lines for breeding purposes? If not, let him go.

    how old is he? I understand a lot of youngsters can be a little overzealous at times. He is most certainly pretty.

    I'd take the money and run unless you really really need him.

    Otherwise, I'd house him separately from the ladies and only allow conjugal visits occasionally, or buy them all stylish saddles...
     
  7. you could cage him off and on, or for bit, until he gets a bit older and wiser:rolleyes:

    If you can sell him, do it.

    My roo destroyed the backs and wings of 2 of my hens and it'll take them at least 6 mos to get them back and looking good. I got rid of him and realize now that I should have done it a lot sooner.
