    The intent was humorous rather than rude, hence the smiley face - sorry that you did not get it. To the OP, sorry if this appeared rude to you.

    Duly noted. In my world, rolling eyes usually means sarcasm.

    Are any laying yet? Any crowing?
    My RIR pullets "squared off" at that age... with each other and the dog. Both are hens, laying and don't do it anymore.
    Now, three young rooster chicks (teenagers) are doing it... but, I know they are roosters and will go to freezer camp when they get just a bit bigger. It's fun to watch the "hackles up" stare down, IMO.

    Good luck, have fun, enjoy them, take a picture.
