    I think that oldhen has answered your question correctly. He's a healthy looking bird.

    I just had to give him a swift kick and took out a bunch of those pretty feathers. Someone please tell me roosters calm down with age!

    Yes, roosters usually settle down with age.

    Not every rooster improves in temperament. Human aggressive roosters often get worse.
