Hello all! New to the Backyard Chicken Forum. I have 3 hens that were hatched late March and about a month ago added a cockerel who was hatched early August. He is a Welsummer who has yet to crow and has bumps where his spurs will come out. The girls and him were introduced gradually but since he was just a tiny fella, the girls put him in a submissive position. He is now almost as big as them but still very submissive to them. I got him for more protection (I lost my 4th hen to a hawk the week before I got him). I was wondering when he may become more rooster like!? He is the second on the left.
