Pretty sure I know the answer but would like y'alls thoughts before I rehome ..... cockerel??
Yes definitely a cockerel.
If its 10 weeks of age, oh ya you've got a cockerel there.
10 weeks...They boys have it.
Pretty much what I was thinking.. I'm actually wanting to keep him but the older he gets the more my older guy don't like him. That's what made me almost positive he is a boy
Mature roosters will see young, up and coming cockerels as a threat. The mature rooster will keep putting the cockerel in his place until he learns it.
Well that started today lol I felt bad for the little guy
He'll learn quickly and figure out his place in the pecking order. If the rooster get to rough you may have to separate them. But if you intend on keeping them together in the long run. Its best to leave them alone and let them sort it out.
They'll work it out with time and space.
We free range .... only have 10 hens as of now . Is it possible they will be Ok? Everyone always tell me no to 2 roosters I would love to keep him though. I'm only a little more than a year in on raising chickens and learning as I go . I have 1 coop that houses 20 chicken so I have the room to keep him and 47 acres for them to roam though they stay on the same 2 by my house
