    My manfighter, Fallow, killed one cockerel and seriously injured another young chick that wandered into his pen. He is an all around mean cock and doesn't tolerate anything except his one favorite hen. I had another hen with them but he treated her badly and she went broody just to get away from him I think.

    All my other roosters have no issue with hens or chicks.

    I'd say an intervention is in order.

    per internet that's almost impossible what most probably more likely than not happened is the cockeral had a myocardial infarction due to likely high cholesterol and build-up of calcium/plaque in the arteries coupled with the trauma of the cocks seemingly over zealousness in trying to instigate a physical confrontation. Just by thoughts.
