    They really think they are big boys (if they're even boys)!

    Ah, what an age that is! I have three 4 week old Orps and two of them are cockerels. They are sparring fools, lemme tell ya.

    I was so thrilled to actually have the camera (crappy camera that it is) in my hand at just the right time!

    I snapped two Orps fighting once in the grow out coop. Let me see if I can find it.

    Oh yes, I'd like to see that. My Orps are so docile; I can't imagine it!!

    Orp cockerels fighting at about five weeks old. In fact, one of them is my big blue boy, Suede.

    My Cuckoo Maran roosters did that when they were very young, the female was much for docile [​IMG]

    I have a Black Australorp and a White Rock 9 weeks old which I think are both roos, they bump chests, are they fighting or just figuring out the "pecking order"? new to chickens......

    speckledhen: What a great photo! I love the one that has the feathers sticking straight out so you can see his little neck. So adorable, little bits of badness....
