All of my chickens were handled a lot when they were hatched or very small. I do not handle them too much now except for check ups and petting them ocasionally. My big mix Rooster has a bit of an additude, his Bantom nearly identical brother is very cool and friendly. I picked up the big roo (about 8 lbs) yesterday.... He was very excitable and jumpy at first, he then sat quietly on my lap (let me check him for bugs) waiting for me to let loose so he could get back to the hens. This is my first adult chicken flock experience. Are big Roos usually this easy to handle ?
