    Well I finally got rid of the rest of my 10 week old packing peanut roosters and now I have a 10 week old silkie rooster that was the sweetest thing in the world, but now he pecks my hand when I go to pet him! What the world? Has he decided that he wants to be the main rooster? I have a 10 week old EE roo but he is very nice. Is this normal? Should I start the "I am the head roo" treatment? Thanks!

    I have a silkie roo too that was born December 22. He used to be sooo sweet, but now has turned EVIL too. I'm selling him because I now think he's out to get me...[​IMG]

    I have no clue!!! He was always so loving, and I even used to keep him in with my babies because he mothered them, and was always very portective....UNTIL the other day I went to feed and there was a masacre...[​IMG]

    He had killed two of my barred rock babies, and now I hate his guts. I don't know why all of a sudden the mood swing, but maybe he's bi-polar. So now he's outta here.
