The new rooster was raised by a city dwelling chicken lover who allowed the chickens in the house but had to rehome the rooster since they aren't allowed in town.
I expected him to be bullied for a bit then settle in. However he hasn't left the coop other than when I take him out. He acts terrified of the girls even though they mostly ignore him now. If they even look his way he runs away terrified. It has been a month.
He does not even try to crow or act like a rooster.
Any thoughts? I hatched 13 chicks from my last rooster who was a gentleman of a rooster. I'm hoping one of them ends up like his daddy.
