    Just being a little buttheaded cockerel. Once the testosterone starts flowing it seems like it will never stabilize, but it does. Just be sure big roo doesn't decide he's had enough of it and kill the little one.

    Any experience ive had with a roo crowing at such a young age & showing signs of normal cocky rooster behavior usually means they will be a bit of an issue when they get older. Try to break him of it while you can lol !

    Francheska,
    Beautiful name by the way [​IMG]

    I don't have time tonight, unfortunately.
    I have written myself a note and tomorrow I will try to find one of our members that can translate some information on keeping roosters from becoming difficult from english to russian for you. [​IMG]
