    What is the best way to make sure your roo's aren't overly agressive. If you handle them alot when they are young, will they tame up some?

    Currently I am changing the cage where I have the heat lamp twice per day so they get handled then. I freshen up thier water twice a day too. I just don't want a mean rooster biting me! Or is it just the luck of the roo?

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    Reading on this board I have heard it go both ways. Too much handling, very little handling. Treat them the best you can, and if they turn mean, then get rid of them.

    Good luck!
