    I put my 2-3 week old chicks outside today for the first time because it was 89 degrees here today. One of my Gold Laced Polish went nuts. S/he began chest butting the other hens and my 3 week old roo; asserting dominance over the other chicks. My question is how old are roos normally when they begin to "lead the flock"?
