New-to-me Rooster

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Sorry, I'm braggin' all over BYC about this rooster that just happened to wander into my yard. I can't believe what an asset he is. He crows in the middle of the night if there's a predator (cat/dog/coyote) about. He protects his flock of ladies from the annoying drakes (I also keep ducks). I'm still a bit afraid/wary of him as I've never had a roo, but so far he seems to back off from me. I hope all goes well in winter, as he has a large comb and does NOT go into the coop (yet). I think it's because of the ducks. All my flock share the coop. Anyway, here he is. He's a beaut in all ways I can think of. Near as I can figure, he's a standard size American Gamefowl.

He's a yearling, looks to be a "golden duckwing" game bird

Mikeldb: Can you tell me if he will get more aggressive (toward humans) the older he gets? I can't have that, as I'm really not supposed to have roosters in this town anyway! Thanks for the info!

I'd just give him space and give him treats and see how he acts
