Well, with most roos that is kinda their fate because they just have to challenge. I have one right now that, so far, hasn't challenged me or my husband in any way. We call him Roo man Choo and he'll keep that name til he decides to get stupid or dies of old age, whichever happens first, LOL!

We had war in the hen house today! I have had two roosters for 1 1/2 years with no problem. Several days ago I introduced the Americanas into the mix. They did ok to start with.

Then today, the roosters got to fighting. One of the older hens got plucked somewhere in the mix. When I caught the hurt rooster, the other one acted like he was going to attack me; then he backed off. I caught the hurt hen, and the bad boy came at me again, but I put the cage between me and him. Somewhere in all this chaos, one of the young Americanas flew through the air and landed on my head. I put the hurt rooster and the plucked hen in a separate pen. I guess they will be staying there.

Now I have so much dust and feathers up my nose, I don't know if I can stop sneezing.

So why did I buy two roosters?

Because even if you had them before, you foget how bad they can be to have around and catch the "new chicken" bug about every 2 or 3 years.
It took me about three cycles with having roosters around to finally figure this out.

I have had hens off and on over the last 30 years. These are the first roosters that I ever owned. I bought them because they are so pretty.
I knew about them in a textbook sort of fashion. Textbooks don't fly through the air and attack you.......

This year my mom finally bought a few chickens, something she's wanted to do for a long time. For the most part she lives in the city with some patches of bare desert and horse property. The first four chickens were eaten by coyotes, except one chicken named Penny, when they were let out of their coop too early in the morning. She bought three more that met the same fate, Penny made it out alive again, apparently putting them up too late in the day has the same effect. There was a learning curve. Penny, who's name was Penny from the beginning, then became our Lucky Penny.

Mom bought three more chickens that she has managed to keep alive so far. I don't know their names, but there are two beautiful red ones with the feathery feet, a gorgeous black and white speckled one, and of course Penny who is gray. The red ones are very friendly, my kids love to hold them. They just squat down when they know they're caught. All four lay eggs.

LOL! That's why RooManChoo keeps his name til he gets stoopid, in which case his name will become Sunday Dinner, or he dies of old age. He's closing in on 1 year old now, and that's when I've had roos lose their minds in the past. Hubby, who named him, understands that the day he drops a wing, does a dance or God Forbid attacks me, he's dinner. I put up waaaaaaaay too long with the last one and this one will not get the chance to draw blood.

That looks like a Cochin, they're known for being docile if not friendly. Mine are actually very sociable and like being held and carried around. I have one that even likes to go for short rides in the truck with me. Yes, I'm that much of a chicken hugger.....sooooo ashamed, LOL!
