In the Brooder
- Sep 3, 2011
I have a black cochin. He is gorgeous. BUT he has a bad temper and will chase and attack people. He mostly chases kids and women. He is more nervous around men and usually runs away. My grandma wants to keep him because she loves him so much (shes never been attacked, but he tries to attack me everytime I go out there and I'M THE ONE WHO HAS TO CARE FOR HIM.) I want to get rid of him when we rotate old hens for new ones. We also have 2 golden polish cockerels who are sweet and we will keep no matter what, 2 Red Star cockerels who we will probably get rid of with the old hens, and another cochin cockerel who I want to keep to replace the mean cochin but my grandma won't allow us to get rid of the mean rooster. Why should we keep him if he can be replaced by sweet roosters? Any ideas on maybe getting him to be nicer or convincing my grandma to let us get rid of him? He is also aggressive to other roosters! Most of our roosters leave each other alone, but if he sees another rooster he instantly attacks them until they are a bloody mess.
