Our flock of BOs is 14 weeks old today. One of the three roosters crows, the other two don't. Is there a "chicken rule" that states that only the boss rooster crows or will the others start getting noisy, too? The crowing rooster is the one DH and I both "recognize" as the alpha rooster. We show him preference with treats, and so on. But the other roosters still challenge him. All the chickens seem to recognize us as dominant, they run to us, come when we call, and so on. Can we affect who is the top chicken in the pecking order?
