One of the additions I added to my little coop is a roo for my girls. Right now I have three hens: two a year and a half old, one is 6 months old. The roo is about 6.5 weeks and I was just wondering what an expected timeline re behaviours like crowing and trying to mate would be. So far he's been pretty quiet and mostly just content to just roost and cuddle with the hens, and I'm ok with that, but also wondering how much to expect behaviour to change with age? He's a little smaller than the older rooster the person I bought them from had available but that one was two weeks older and I thought the younger age would let me accustom him to handling and also being a pet more. So far the new hen and rooster are a LOT braver and calmer about being handled than my older hens, which doesn't surprise me since the older hens also came to me a lot older and weren't used to a lot of handling. With that in mind, I wouldn't mind if all of them got a bit more accustomed to regular interaction with me. If anyone has any advice for this, I would appreciate it. Before these four, I had had two girls from the Wild Bird Center, who because of their previous living situation were some of the calmest and cuddliest birds, let alone quail, I had ever met. Baba Yaga would roost on my chest and just hangout, and Kikimore would actually play a little with my Chihuahua.
