I've kept 2 roosters )plus several hens) for over 2 years now. One is an EE and the other a Buff Orphington. The Buff has been the #1 since day 1. The EE has followed the flock far behind, but is allowed to be part of the flock by #1 Buff, and occasionally gets to see some hen action. All of a sudden, #2 EE has found new status and is #1 Roo. After 2 years, the Buff now runs from the EE. I live in Ohio, so they have been cooped up due to snow, my birds won't step feet on ground where there is snow. They have occasionally had a spat over the years, but we can quickly break them up and they go back to their normal pecking order. Can roos swap leadership roles, even after 2 years in the same pecking order?
