Do roosters attack chicks?

It depends on the rooster. Some roosters will be very aggressive with chicks, while some have been reported to be extremely nice to them, going so far as to almost brood them. In general, the roosters will leave chicks alone unless they really get in his way, in which case he'll probably give them a swift peck, but not really attack them.
