So, we got our first ever flock in Dec.. supposedly they were 4 months old, possibly some 3 months.. We now have a question about one that may be a rooster. below are some photos and hope to help. .
First things first, we have yet to have any eggs and has been a daily frustration when we head out and see nothing to whoop and hollar about. Though recently, just the past 3 days or so, we have seen Miranda' standing on top of 2 of the 4 hens (herself included in the 4 total) and bitting/pecking at their comb/top of their head. At first, I thought it was just the one and the pecking order was still going on since we recently lost one and figure that whole thing has started over. Well, i guess it has not since the standing on them has now spread.
Since we are not up at the crack of dawn and do not plan to.. other than setting up the ol GoPro, is there anything else that may tell us that we have a rooster?
A few note worthy things to add before the photos is that she does NO dust bath and smells of fish.. like rotten fish.. like a bad saturday night in the slums of Warez, Mexico strip club (sorry to be so vulger but i am trying to get the bad word across that i do not want to say.. )(but its true.)
Behold the photos.. let me know!
