    Greetings! I was looking to find an answer to a random chicken question amd found this site! I can tell I'll love it! We have just a few chickens right now. A amazing Thai game cock, a cochin banty, a R.I red, 3 cross chicks from previous 3, a black frizzle banty and a gold link red cross we hatched ourselves. I really love the frizzles!! We have raised chickens quite a few years, and we raise and butcher ourselves 50 meat birds a year. Like probably many of you, I could sit and watch my birds scratch and waddle around all day. They are so entertaining. Like chicks playing football with a june bug!
    The question I had was- Would a cockerel act like a mama with another chick? THe frizzle I have is most definantly a hen, but the Gold link cross looks like a boy. He will cover the banty when it rains and she cuddles under it at night. Will boys do this????? I would love it if it is really a hen, not a rooster. Don't want to have to get rid of him:( Nice to "meet "you all and thanks for any advice![​IMG]

You may want to see if one of the more experienced people responds or maybe post your question in the 'Chicken Behavior' or 'Flock Management' Section.
