Angry bird, indeed
A friend gave us a China game rooster that was about a year old... At the time, I was excited because he really was a pretty bird. Unfortunately, he was ANGRY. Just constantly looking for a fight...I often referred to him as the "drunken frat guy". We let him roam free, and he liked to pick on all of the other birds. We got rid of him after about a year because he had been bullying a couple of hens. Poor gals were left with bald spots from his pecking.
I have brief experience with only one bird, but I can honestly say I have no interest in getting any more. I wouldn't recommend these unless you have no other animals..
