He attacked my 5yo for the last freekin' time this morning. He didnt even have the excuse of feeling threatened this time. My son was just standing next to me tossing mealworms to the hens when out of nowhere, the roo just came up and spurred him (thankfully, they're not developed yet) in the leg. It pains me to get rid of him because I genuinely like(d) him. He's smart, is respectful of _me_ (for now), not terribly noisy, and he treats his girls really well. Still, my sons safety and happiness is more important than some little snot of a rooster who cant be nice to him. Anyhow- I couldnt find a butcher to take him, so he's going to a local organic farm on Sunday. I get the impression that they're doing me a favor by taking him, but they're "taking care of him" for free since I said I dont want him back. I'm hugely appreciative of this, as I do *not* have it in me to kill him myself. Now I just need to hold onto my resolve that he is not "fixable" and even if he straightens out a bit, I'll never fully be able to trust him around kids. Therefore, this is what is best for everyone. ... I just sort of wish my husband was around to help me through this. Sunday morning is going to be hard.
