    Well, our one "for sure" rooster has his "wings" full. One of the hens, Pocky, has decided she is the top girl in the plastic tub. The rooster to be, Roque, will climb on my palm, then Pocky will "fly" across the pine shavings to knock him off his perch. The three "hens" will huddle together to sleep, leaving Roque out of the loop. He will probably need therapy later in life.....hope we can find a home for him, can't keep a rooster here in Paradise, CA. He will probably get into drugs, heavy into meal worms and cracked corn, and become a burden on society....[​IMG]...
