Wanted: Docile/Non-Agressive Rooster

Good tempered Rooster wanted. Have 2 kids under 3, so temperament very important.
To run with legbars/hybrids/RIR laying hens. Previously had a small Brahma roo. Something handsome a plus too.

Don't get Barnvelders - I had one and he was pure danger every time I went into the shed , the wyandottes are very quiet ( I could give you one later in the year)

Be careful what you get with your little ones

Thanks very much Joe...thatís another one to add to the bad list! There only seems to be a few breeds that are generally pretty good...can add Wyandotteís to that now!

Iíll pass on the silver laced for the moment but thank you. Donít tempt me with a Brahma trio...hubby already thinks Iím crazy having two runs with a laying flock & a PB flock!!
What colour are they out of curiosity......

We have some green legged polish boys that are well mannered. These are full size fowl not polish bantams. They are pure bred and very handsome. We are also in kildare.

Leave a stick in the pen and any rooster that gets anyway saucy give him a thrashing with the stick.we had a lad here that got saucy and I clocked him with a saucepan I was carrying one morning.that was the end of his attitude and if a get manners thrashing doesnít work cull him some night when heís easy to catch

That will only make the situation worse. Aggression breeds aggression. You need to diffuse the anger. Pick him up and cuddle him. It may sound daft but it works.

@jjsuper - so tempting!!! Might be on course for a divorce though if I brought them home. Hubby canít understand my enjoyment of the big Brahmas!

Re: agression: I have heard of ways to help sort an aggressive rooster& tried some myself over the years but canít trust them around small kiddies. Nothing is 100% but I try to reduce the odds as much as possible.

@Joseph - I didnít actually know you could get Polish LF. I bet they are stunning birds! Dropped you a PM.

Any good size pekin should do the trick and plenty of colours to choose from. They are usually very quiet. I have some eating out of my 3yo daughter's hands.

Take no chances with small children- a rooster could do serious damage in one swoop
