I have a roo that is the meanest thing I have ever seen. I have flogged him numerous times and he wont back down one bit. I have kicked him off of me so hard I thought he was dead, but a few seconds and he is right back in attack mode. I hate to cull him out cause I know he is protecting his girls, but my wife and kids are afraid of him. I have an awesome little cockerel that we hold and hand feed daily that I plan on using for a replacement. When will he be mature enough to take over the "king of the roost" position? Six months old?
