So I was reading the thread about personality and it brought up that question. So I got 3 day old Ameraucana chicks in July and since I am new to them,I am not versed in the nuances of sexing them, and while we have been waiting for blue eggs, I started noticing some changes in my black bird... "she" started picking on the other birds her same age. The older birds kept "her" in line. Well last week while checking the coop before work I heard a crowing from inside and it all started to click that "she" was actually a he... Yesterday while I had them out he started in on his Rooster like things and was trying to make it with the older birds all of which were ticked off and were having no parts of it! They gave him the business! One hen almost kicked his behind! Lol So do they actually like having a roo around?
