I agree.

It depends on how aggressive the breed is, but generally around month 2 you might see cockerels begin to "shadow box" with one another without actually laying any blows.  They begin establishing the pecking order since Day 1.  By Month 3, they are "teenagers" and by Month 6+ you could expect them to start fighting.

We currently don't have a run set up for them. We let them free range around the farm, so if my pullet (maybe) needed to, could get away...but only until someone caught up. I took some pictures recently, and as you said, keesmom, they do have similar combs.




The last picture is of my possible pullet, completely different tail feathers. But, they maybe that's the lowest rooster, of 4.

Drumstickdiva, you are very wise, concerning men of several species! Haha, but really, knowing now that they are 4 cockerrls. I love them, and they bring me so much happiness! Even with no eggs! Please, I hope someone has raised roosters, exclusively
