    Dear Friends here at BYC....Im hoping somoeone here in California can help....I have a rooster that is mean. Ive been attacked one too many times now by him. No matter what I seem to do he continues to attack me. Im worried about my children. They can no longer roam free and play in the backyard thus because of me worring about them being attacked. I want to give him away. Anyone interested in a free rooster. My husband plans to take him tomorrow and do away with him somehow....please if you live in So cal. his time is up.....please contact me here or via my email. Pic will follow!

    You should try posting this in the BST trade section, or contact a mod about moving it. You might find some luck there! [​IMG]

    Best Of Luck!

    I had one looking just like that who turned mean. Funny thing was that although he was big and strong, he was the least dominant of all my roosters, so he tried to take it out on me. As that line from Pretty Woman went 'mistake.... BIG mistake!' On his first attempt I gave him a swift kick, on the second attempt I granted my dog permission to work him over a little and by that evening, before the third attempt, he was donated to the gardener for chicken posole. End of story.

    Hubby says to show him that YOU are the dominate one. Maybe you could take a straw broom to him, just to show him not to mess with y'all. Hubby says you could try chasing him for a while, see if he gets the hint.

    Quote:Im actually very excited to see you post though I honestly can say to you that I am not interested in aquiring another roo. Your more than welcome to come here and take my roo home. I have no doubt that my roo will do the job that you want. My birds room freely on my property here in Menifee and he is always keeping track of all 10 of his hens. He is an amazing roo but he is too aggressive to me and my family. If your still interested, which I hope, please email me. I have an interest of someone who wants to come and pick him up off of craigslist but I have no doubt he will end up as dinner or as a fighter. Rather he end up with scenario such as yours.
