Dad , Beau, is no longer with me, my other roo bullied him ,which pecking order, I realize can be awful and graphic. However pepper did it in such a smooth way that I only found out how miserable beau really was 2 days before he passed sad.png
Beau was my first ever chicken 😕 And pepper let him be ,hang with the girls...he wouldn't let him drink or eat .
Thank you very much. I'm so happy I got copper out of my 7 chicks I hatched,he is the only one who looks like beau smile.png
He is my love bug smile.png wish he was a miss copper though 😄

Glad to hear you have found a legacy.

 

If Copper turns out as fine as his daddy Beau, and you like him better, why not get rid of the more aggressive roo and keep Copper as your main man.
