    I was giving my little bantam cochins some broken-up pieces of a cracker. Now I've seen my roos pick a crumb and put it down for the girls to have. This little roo of mine picked up a piece and walked around the coop to give it to his girlfriend. I just about melted. Who knew that a roo could be so romantic?

    That's so sweet. [​IMG] I had a blue silkie roo for awhile that always gave treats to my blue silkie hen, and not to the other 13 hens of other breeds/colors that they lived with. She was his favorite and that was that. Roosters are such characters. [​IMG]

    Yes it is adorable and pretty common.
    Many of my roos do the same thing with chicks to show them what to eat.

    My roos do that also, some times I wonder when they eat as they are always feeding the hens [​IMG]
