    hey everyone, the first chicken I've ever got was my silkie rooster which was not too long ago, of course I pampered him so much from a chick to 7 months because I felt like chickens needed a lot of attention. Later on I got 6 hens and when they roost the rooster crows for me so I can pick him up and put him on the roost another spoiled example is I use to feed him treats all the time when he was young so it expects me to put some mealworms in the food; if there aren't any he only eats a little. The only good thing about him is that he's not a mean rooster. So my question is how do I make my rooster more independent and not as spoiled?
