Hello, I live in the city, like a neighborhood with houses very close together and neighbors and people walking the sidewalks and everyone waving as they drive by. We purchased 4 chicks and a supposedly baby purple peacock, which as they grew we assumed they were all female. That being thought the bigger they grew and still the more female they looked. These chickens have never ever even seemed to have the interest of jumping on the fence to leave. They show no interest in exploring whats over the fence, or down the street. Nothing. When I let them out to do their thing like forage, dust bath eat whatever they want, I have never had a problem with anyone taking off, to this day no chicken has voluntarily left my fenced in yard. One day I got the idea I needed a rooster. A big one!, bright, handsome, never you mind about the friendliness I wanted a rooster and had full support from our neighbors too. A co-worker of mine who lives in the country gave me one of many wild roosters and one hen. WELL! This guy and girl are wild. They beat up my chickens, they kept getting into the neighbors yard. My neighbors are calling me at work to pick the rooster up at their house. OMG. Accepted. This was a bad idea. My day off comes around, I let my feathered friends out as usual, this rooster is singing in the middle street, people are honking because he is in the street and staring them down, he won't move. ((Embarrased)) Okay so the question is, Where these chickens leaving because they are wild? That is what they are used too, exploring? The hen followed him. My original chickens let them leave and stayed in our yard. They said good riddens to these bullies. Oh, and the peacock is a female and starting to show some purple. Like purple, not blue with purple, or hints of purple, just purple. She is still blossoming but she's getting there.
