Ive heard that these birds might be flighty and nervous
I had a rhode island red and loved him. He was the sweetest bird! But being in the city I had to give him away. I still miss him!
Leghorns are a small, energetic bird. I have RIR in the flock and find them friendly, steady, but mouthy. I have never kept an RIR roo, so cannot speak to that. But experience teaches that generalizations are important, but differences in individual birds will always occur.
What about leghorns?
Quote:flighty and nervous, yes - the leghorns were - the rir's were just not friendly, period
aggressive, no, none of mine were
My white leghorns are very sweet and they lay a lot of eggs, almost every day! I adore them. They are pretty too. I hand raised them and give them a lot of treats. They were part of my first chick purchase (ever) so I guess I'm a bit biased. Still I had no intention of having pet chickens (just some eggs!) but those leghorns and golden comets (who also lay a lot) stole my heart, and now I have a new hobby
Cool Pics... your cat is fine with them!!!
I've heard the leghorn roosters aren't very nice though. My neighbor has a leghorn rooster and he is not that friendly, also very dominant. I don't believe he had a lot of human interaction, so maybe that made it worse.
how do you hold a roo?
Quote:All of my animals get a lot really well! One cat did swat at a chicken today while the bird was trying to take her food, but most of the time if I put food out, they all come running - dogs, cats, and chickens. and eat happily together. Most of the time they don't pay much attention to each other. My neighbor however did adopt a stray male cat recently, and he is becoming a bit of a concern.
