    I say the meaner, angrier, tougher a rooster is the BETTER! I don't live in the city like most on here and a good tough game cock helps protect their flock, cuz I can't be around 24/7. The weak roosters don't last very long with all the predators out here...Yes, I have to keep all my cocks in seperate coops but I still would rather have a big tough meanie than a small gimp weanie anyday!

    The larger the spurs the better! [​IMG]

    Sure, I love a mean rooster. Especially when he's simmering in a pot on my stove [​IMG]

    Mean rooster will teach the curious dog to stay away real quick! We intentionally got a mean rooster from a friend. When we brought him out here he lost his meanness! Guess the pecking order changed & he became a calm eat out of your hand roo. Took about a week for him to stop being aggressive.

    As long as he is not aggressive to my family or me he is fine and welcome to stay, but..... Yeah I like chicken and dumplings too.

    Why can't you have a tough, friendly Roo? My Harry is friendly to people, gentle with his ladies, but woe to any stray animal that comes near! [​IMG]. Just ask the neighbors cat! He hasn't come back in two months!
