Hi there, I have a question about behavior and I hope it hasn't been a subject beat to death already. This is my second year with chickens and I'm really considering breeding some of my favorite types. I never liked the thought of a rooster before but obviously, I need to have one to breed! I'm prepared to have seperate groups with different coops. My hens are more pets than anything. This year I integrated my up-and-coming chicks and there's a couple cockerels among the pullets. Now, my hens are friendly. They all squat for me, can easily be picked up and hop on me for attention. They also follow me everywhere. How does a rooster change things? I won't put up with any human aggression, that's for sure, but what can I expect a good rooster to act like towards me? Will he stop the hens from acting the way they do when I'm involved? ( I'm a softie, I know ). Can roosters be affectionate like my adult hens? Thanks for reading!
