I have 4 roosters 12 weeks old. They have been crowing or about 2 weeks now. I have bullies. They are bound for freezer camp as soon as they are big enough. My biggest rooster is a good rooster. He's very good to the girls and he is the last to go to roost. He will be the keeper.

he picks at several.their is a very small one (pretty sure its a pullet)that he constantly peaks and pulls her feathers out.she is terrified of him.he chases her away from the food.i feel so bad for her.he is a americauna and big.i thought that roos are suppose to look after and protect their flock.i'am hoping that after he gets older he will mellow out.
