I have 2 roosters and 3 hens. Fortunately they all get along. Chickie was my first attempt at hatching and he is now 18 months old. Hessy and Spookie were bought this summer and are the same age. Chickie has chosen Spookie as "his girl". But Hessy is Queen of the flock and the two roam around together ruling their "kingdom" Henny and Penny were hatched this last May. Henny turned out to be a rooster. I guess names don't help determine gender!!! Anyway, they are 28 weeks old. Henny is demonstrating his male behaviors and chases Penny and Hessy every where. This does not seem to bother Chickie at all. The girls will run to him and duck behind him and he just steps out of the way. I am happy that so far there are no problems and hope that none develop. I am gone much of the day so I don't want to come home to an ugly surprise. Will the peace in my coop continue? Please say yes, it is a small coop!! I can't believe how much enjoyment I get out of these birds. I did it originally for a school project for my class. Now I can't imagine not having them. Even hubby is semi attached.
