We just picked up a Braham rooster that we found on craigslist and I love him! He's gorgeous. We live in city limits so I actually bring him into the garage each night so he doesn't wake the neighbors first thing in the morning. My only question (I did post this on another thread before I found this "Brahama" thread....), so he was left in a cage separate from the flock because the previous owner already had a rooster. When I brought him home, he ran right up to my hens and literally chased them all over the yard to mate. I thought maybe it was because he was really excited and that he would settle down but he still does it (its only been 3 days). He hangs out with them no problem but when it comes to mating, this guy is rough. And when he's done he will just stand on the chicken for a few seconds... it kind of irks me. Is this just his personality or is he going to calm down over time? I thought brahma's were more gentle than most breeds being the reason I picked him out.
