It's shows that he is healthy and wants to be the boss.. I wouldn't cull unless you have kids or elderly around him.

He seems ok as long as you dont turn your back on him.

if he doesnt stop doing it after the breeding season is over, then he is just plain nasty, an a cull job!

Walk towards him with eye contact and push him, repeat that, be sure no children or infirm people come close to him.

By pushing him, u are asking him to fight back!
either press on his back ,pushing him flat to the ground ,as he would his hens, or pick him up an carry him about for a bit.
nasty roos have no place in my stock, as it can be passed on.
see how he is after the breeding season.

Nasty is not a gene its up to the bird itself and the surroundings I have had nasty father breed the quietest sons so the about comment is wrong.Any breeding cock that is worth his salt will show aggression in the breeding season.Nature being nature.If you dont breed with him cul or sell or pass on but if you do breed with him understand thats how it works
