Nasty rooster
« on: March 21, 2014, 05:33:51 PM »
managed to end up with one and he has to go.  i'm thinking-night time-fishing net-beach towel-cage...someones dinner.

anyone have any words of wisdom?  i'm already going in with gloves and face protection.  he's put holes in a couple of us and i don't want to take any chances on him really hurting someone.

I would think a nasty tempered rooster is no more worth keeping than a Queen that produces nasty tempered bees.  Unless you need the protection from predators.
can you open your coop to get easy access to top roost?  if yes , then night time, fishing net combo is my suggestion.  if you are in an area you can safely shoot a gun, maybe close the house in the morning after he walks out and before the hens come out.   :chop:

Walk up to the roost, grab legs with left hand, neck with right. Jerk with left hand and snap neck. Do it well and the head will come off.

he respects the spay bottle with the ammonia in it.  it's just that no one else wants to deal with him.  since i got some new chicks, i'm thinning the old out.  he's going along with a couple of hens that don't lay anymore.  yeah, i could kill him here, but i can take him to the feed store and someone can have him for dinner.  i really, really, hate plucking chickens.  have not had to since i was a teen, but that smell comes back to me when i think about it.   :-P

Something about a stupid chicken(rooster). You can beat them half to death and in fifteen seconds they'll be back for more.

A dip net is hard to beat to catch chickens.  Night is usually easy if you can get to where they roost, of course.  Certainly the only solution I've found to a mean rooster is to cut their throat.  They are much better behaved after that...

thanks guys.  i don't think it's going to be to hard to catch him at night.  he roosts in the perfect spot.  the reason i'm taking him to the feed store is that we have various immigrant populations that are not intimidated by nasty birds and make good use of them.  i'd just as soon give them away to someone who will eat them.  and...if they do something else with him...well, that's what he seems to like anyway.....

The last really fierce rooster I had would spur you when you had your back to him.  I was working the shovel one day and already had it with him when he picked his last fight.  It is amazing what you can do with a shovel to a rooster.

i really, really, hate plucking chickens

Never plucked one myself. Looked at it and decided skinning was the way to go. I don't eat the skin anyway.

I had a silver duck wing once that was really mean. He wouldnt quit either . My neighbor thought he was so cute she gave me 10.00 for him. He would pound on a pantleg for hours if you let him . Ha
