all of my chickens get lots of attention, and for the most part love to sit in my lap- haven't finished the coop yet, so they are in the spare bedroom, moved them this morning, they outgrew the bathroom- still have the banties in the tub there... i am forcing myself to stop buying chicks...LOL!
they were so cute tonite- all lined up together...with the roo in the middle
I don't know if this goes with the personality of the breed as a whole, but my Australorp roo is mean!!! He will try to attack me through the fence if that were possible. I had to set up a chicken flap that I can controll from the outside of the pen so I could keep him out of the chicken coop while I collect eggs so I don't get attacked!!!
However, my hen is a sweety and a great sitter and mom!
Waveron, sounds like you got a rogue BA!!!! Typically the roos are docile and sweet. Of course, they are still roos, so there is always the possibility of aggressive behavior, but that's not often the case with BA's.
Byrdluv, your chicks are adorable. You have a nice assortment!
