Remove the testes. Its called caponizing. It is backyard surgery and can be done with a $20 caponizing kit. If you are not up to cutting on your bird (while it is wide awake), then contact a farm vet and see what he/she will charge to take care of the nuts.
You end up with a less aggressive rooster (Now called a Capon). The downside is that you will no longer have fertilized eggs. With 5 hens, I'll bet the hens will be darn happy for the break from the rooster.
