    i have 2 roos at my house currently and they both crow and mate
    but they dont fight and when i pick one up the other one rushes over to protect him like they do when i pick up a hen

    they are a Leghorn/mille fleur D'Uccle and a RIR/SLW

    but my 1 year old SLW hen is the top chicken

    My Buff Rock roo has taken #1 spot from my Barred Rock roo. The Barred is doing the jumping and the Buff runs and knocks him off and will chase him all over. The Barred also gives the Buff a wide berth. I know there will be a serious fight in the near future.
