    I had to find a new home for Tommy. He has been getting more and more aggressive.

    I had asked on here a few weeks ago about him when he first attacked a friend. He has went after me a few times, but the last one scared me bad. He was very seriously vicious about it. Managed to beat him off with a horse whip. I hated to hit him that hard, but it was the only thing that stopped him and his attack.

    But even after all that, I will miss him. I sure wish he had not turned mean. I've had him for two years and he was a big pet. Don't know what in the world happened that he went "nuts" this year. He turned two this spring, so don't know if it was an age thing?????

    The guy who came and got him has two hens and has been looking for a bourbon red male. So he will have a good home. And two hens all to himself.

    Mine did the same, once breeding season hit he went nuts trying to kill us. I thought it might pass but it just kept getting worse. Took him to the butcher yesterday.

    Quote:He was fine last year during breeding. Not one hint of a problem. But this year he got vicious!
