    Hi, We acquired a very handsome Dominque rooster by mistake in Sept.

    We have a very wise and reasonable ameraucana about 2 years old.

    What would chix from the above 2 be like??

    After 2 years with our flock we really don't know much about them, but are constantly surprised and amused. For example, the real fight is between the rooster and the dominant hen, who has become a frazzled mess due to his relentless attentions. And, the hen at the very bottom of the pecking order is the one who chases off the rooster and his sisters.
