    Difference between being Manfighters and Territorial

    When you enter a rooster's pen and he kicks the **** out of you. does that automatically mean hes a manfighter or are they just being territorial?? Just wondering.

    yes this rooster is in a fly pen. after he will give a few pecks and then stop. and btw hes only about a year old. ive been rubbing his back and chest for him to get used to being touched and held. ive been doing this for about a week now and it seems like its helped a little but i think i may have a little manfighter or do all gamecocks do this. and btw i am only a beginner with only one rooster. just trying to learn how to raise them.

    I agree with turd. If the rooster goes for your face instead of your hands when you try 2 catch him or If he turns around on you when you spar him I would consider him a very dangerous manfighter.

    The way your describing him, sounds normal...... keep doing as your doing..... handle while you can since molt's coming soon, then he'll really be agitated! lol

    Wear long sleeve tee's or sweaters and gloves to grab him so he doesn't hurt you.... important that the bird sees what he does to you doesn't hurt you...... like if he's pecking you after you grab him and you flinch or show it hurts, he's going to keep doing it....

    you will see if he's a man fighter until you spare him...... he should lose all attention to you when put in front with another rooster.... face them, and drop him, if he goes straight to the opponent your good, if he ignores the other rooster and would rather turn to hit you , you got yourself chicken stew dinner for the night....

    Re: Difference between being Manfighters and Territorial

    i got a bird that will fight me when he chooses some times he will fight me as hard as he can other times he just acts normal hiding, i'll pick him up he will peck 3 times then chill out at other times he will peck me for as long as i handle him once for a walk down the block he pecked me the whole time? one time he almost got the chopping block he attacked me so i returned the favor now i know this is bad but understand my frustration as i raised him from a month old, never miss treating him in any way not even pulling him aggressively by the tail. any way he still breaths as he has been with me for some time now.

    Re: Difference between being Manfighters and Territorial

    the only way id ever cull a manfighter is if hes a battle cock there aint no way id cull a pure cause they wont throw all man fighters maybe one or two but no way all and even if it was a battle cock id try antry and try some more cause you either bought him and thats money down the tubes or raised him and put time and money and effort into him so thats money down the tubes just the same i like to use them for a spar partner or just put him on a tie cord in the far corner of the yrtd and play with him let him shuffle on my boot or tell a friend to go pick him up and watch him eat him up he aint gonna be that much extra to take care of plus if you want rid of it take a cross hen or two to a place out in the woods where you know some @$$hole aint gonna steal it and turn them out and go back every few weeks in the warm months and you might get some no hassle pretty much free stags its worth a try if your gonna cull him anyway cause you know hes your bloodlines might not be a broodcock but free is free and if a coon gets him try and catch your hens and take them to the house

    I consider one a manfighter if they would rather fight you than another bird. If he stays focused on the other bird and not you, I do not consider them a manfighter. But, that's only my standard, not everyone else's.

    Man fighter will fight you instead of another rooster bottom line on that. If he does not turn on you when you go to spar him then he is just mean LOL not man fighter.


    Blades I had muffs that would give that old ruble a good on man fighter lol

    A manfighter comes to the door to meet you and goes to the end of his cord to hit you also known as dumplins around my place i have no use for manfighters to many good fowl to use manfighters

    i really heat man fighter no matter how superb he is, he is absolutely has no place in my yard....a man fighter is always a man fighter regardless whoever with him a human or a chicken he will try to bite....

    territorial...bite some when pick at once but gently good upon rubbing his back and chest...

    I remember when I was about 15 a buddy mine thought he was tough. I taught him how to catch a rooster on a cord. I then asked him to get this muff we had with no beard. That rooster hit him the wrist he had to go sit down cause he thought he was going to pass out. LOL To this day I ask him about and he tells me he aint never been hit by any man as hard as that muff hit him LOL

    Re: Difference between being Manfighters and Territorial

    I have some Washington Pyles that are great in any show, if you can raise one that's not a manfighter. They're the true definition of a manfighter. Two years ago I hatched a clutch of them pure, 4 stags (1 Pyle, 1 Blue and 2 Black Breasted Reds) and 2 pullets. I already knew this line was know to produce terrible manfighters. So, I would take turns carrying them around with me and spending time with each to tame them down. All but one Black Breasted Red were terrible manfighters. I still have a few of them , but that's a line that'll go into the pot.

    Re: Difference between being Manfighters and Territorial

    I've read some comments and i'm happy to say when another cock is out the mean cock i have is focused on any rooster in his presence i've sparred him enough times just he has his moments when he likes to fight me lol maybe he doesn't like when i enter his pen when his ladys are with him cause that is a factor when he is being an ass hole. I should make a when roosters attack video lol he does damage and when you feel his power you will know what i am talking about he punctures flesh through 501's with quarter inch trimmed spurs )

    Re: Difference between being Manfighters and Territorial

    This is kind of off topic, but I just gotta share it. Years ago we were hacking at this little pit in about mid july. Thes two idiots had brought a REAL manfighter each. They just happened to match into each other. Now the reason I call them Idiots is that they both agreed that the thing to do was to fight in the Long knife. When they droped them BOTH roosters ignored each other and turned for the handlers! They did finally find each other and were both mortally wounded real fast. But what a circus watching those fools run from manfighters armed with Razor blades!

    Don't waste them! They are useful when you want to test your other birds for cutting accuracy! When I do get them, "it's a one ticket to paradise" my other stags get a one or two buckle shot with them and it goes for a good cause! After that you can choose to pluck and serve or just coyote food!
