Can you describe good rooster behavior for me please? I have my first cockerels. They each have some redeeming qualities, and each have some things that they do that makes me wonder about them. I want to keep a rooster, but am having difficulty determining if any of these should be kept. Hawkeye: Dances for his girls, is a little rough when mating, finds them treats, has never openly challenged me, but acts as though he is tempted to. Maverick: Dances for his girls, is very rough when mating around the other roosters, but is very gentle when alone, doesn't do the treat thing that I've seen, and has openly challenged me. No-name #1: Has shown no courting behavior, hasn't gotten the mating thing down yet, has never openly challenged me. No-name #2: Does not seem to be as mature. He acts like a chicken (by that I mean he is showing no rooster qualities) I feel like it may be a little too early to choose one just yet. I want to add that I am working with Maverick on the aggression. He seems to only do this when I have something red either on, or as a treat, i.e. tomatoes.
