Hey all. I have a bit of a nasty situation on my hands and was wondering if you all thought it was normal. I purchased some chicks from IDEAL Poultry about three and a half months ago. Included was a male White Leghorn and a male Russian Orloff. Recently, the fast-maturing Leghorn reached mating age and began to do his thing with my female Russian Orloff--but then, to my horror, he began to try it out on my MALE Russian Orloff. And I know that it is a MALE Orloff because he has developed male hackle and sickle feathers, and is showing some male saddle-feather growth. He also fights like a male and uses his barely-visible spurs when kicking. This is just sickening to me. The Orloff cockerel has been living in mortal dread of this Leghorn monster and runs from him as soon as he gets close. He's starting to lose feathers on his back just like hens do, but he's obviously not a pullet. I would like to get opinions on this. Since the Leghorn is hatchery stock (and we all know some of the genetic weirdos that come from hatcheries), I thought maybe he's a little wrong upstairs. But, since he's so young, I'm not sure if he's really got the gender thing down yet. The Leghorn has also began to mate with my male Jersey Giant. This is really getting under my skin and I've GOT to get rid of this Mediterranean menace. Please give suggestions, experience stories, and anything else that may help! Thanks and God bless!
