Ha ha speed!
When I got our barn cat, big black 2 year old, I threw him in the coop the first day with three roosters. They gave him his "welcome to the farm now learn who rules" lesson...

Bwaahaahaa, Fly! I can just see that!

My adult hens gave the cats 'what for' the first couple of days, now they just give them the evil eye if they get too close, and the cats will run off. The cats will still stalk the pullets, but those girls are getting bigger all the time and don't take guff from them, either.

It's hilarious to watch a dust up, and the cats getting their rears handed to them. After it's all done the hens walk away with a, 'Yeah, don't THINK so!' strut!

Oooh! I am so excited to get my "mini chicken".. Now, I need a teacup pig too and I will be as happy as a clam!

Yes, the RIR's are nasty, that's what the rooster was that chased me around, they had many RIR hens too, they were quite large birds.

Yeah, I figured it was probably a RIR roo. Nasty buggers!

Ha! Yeah I know that look! Too funny!

Mine will play stalk still but one look and he turns chicken. Even I know who rules here, they have handed me my rear several times!

(BTW Fulford, my Roos are RIR's...)

Fly, what in heaven's name possessed you to get RIR roos? I guess if you free range them 24/7 it's better to have an aggressive roo, but my chooks are in a run during the week and are only allowed to free range on the weekends, when I'm home and the dogs are out. I lost 3 hens to a fox about a month after I brought them home, so no more free ranging unless I'm there and Keegan can be out to patrol the property.

Oh girl I have 5, with three more younguns growing up. They will mostly be going in the pot as soon as they are big enough. I free range during the day and lock them up at night.
Out in the boonies I have to have an army to keep the hens safe.

I have an old bucket by the door full of chickun whoopin sticks... Shovels, PVC pipes, a hoe, sticks! I even got mad one day and beat the livin tar out of one with my flip flop!

Gotta be meaner than they are.

Yeah, mine get locked up in the coop at night, too. I don't want a fox, coyote or raccoon trying to get at them if they're out in the run at night.

I don't need to be meaner than the roos because they're laid back; it's the HENS I have to watch out for! LOL

We have every breed of chicken known to man I think and all the hens BUT the RIR's are friendly enough. The key is to get them as day-old chicks and constantly handle them. Some definitely do not like to be picked up but they won't attack you or anything.
