Okay, fellow keepers, lovers, and observers of jungle fowl, aka chickens, please try to help me out. I seek your guidance, wisdom and experience in this matter. Of the 18 pullets we got back in early March, at least 3 have proven to be cockerels, or incipient cockadoodlers. One roostered up quite early, with the flowing tail feathers, colorful saddle, prominent comb and significant gold hackles and dark belly. Truly, except for the distinctive EE muff, he looks like a textbook example of a Brown Leghorn roo! My question is this. He is, at 13 weeks, already showing considerable protection of the girls. Is there a fine line between said protection and actual aggression toward his human handlers? So far he is only standing between his girls and the human. If the hen is in distress, he is not flying at us. But he is calling to her and definitely alerts her to us and puffs up warningly if we get too close. Does this sound okay or like anything we need to worry about? Thanks!
