Have a BR rooster and he's been pecking at the hens A WHOLE lot harder than usual. No blood yet, hopefully.
I agree ... I've seen what they can do and it is not pretty. I think that has a lot to do with the way I handle a mean roo.He can do more than peck and chase you. He can lay you open, or lay open children. I was cut to the point that I thought I might need stitches, and others have had to have stitches. They aren't so cute when they are dangerous and harm small children.
when your hens hatch out a batch for you the babys mite have that trait too. give the thing away on craigslist (explain the problem with him) & get yourself a better boy asap. i bet if he spent a few weeks in with my adult roos he would be a much better boy good luckPart of the responsibility of caring for animals is having to do the tough stuff. You cannot pass along that bad behavior to the next owner that may have a young child. Do it yourself, or find someone who can.
