I went a little chick crazy this spring and ended up buying 22 chicks. 7 of the chicks were for my sister's friend, and we lost one. Out of the 14 we ended up keeping I have 3 roo's. We've had them all since they were just a couple days old, their brooder was in our spare bedroom so they were all around us and the dogs pretty much all the time until they were about 7 weeks old and moved to the garage. Anyway. I expected the roosters to be somewhat aggressive towards us or visitors to the house. They're 3-4 months old now and run away from us whenever we go near the pen, or near them in the yard. They've been doing this since we moved them out to the chicken pen about a month ago. So, my question is, will they "learn" to become aggressive as they get older or do they see us as alpha chickens or something? One of the roosters (the youngest of the 3, a little splash cochin bantam) started crowing on Friday. He doesn't crow until we let them out in the morning and only crows for a few minutes, and didn't crow at all on Saturday or Sunday. This morning when I saw him crowing he seemed to be trying really hard not to crow...it was pretty funny.
