Hi! So I'm not a newbie to chickens, I've been raising them for around 6-5 years, but there is always new stuff I'm learning. I recently got 4 Delaware chickens for a show I'm raising them for. Now, they come from a hatchery, which is supposedly a good one (though the guy in charge never said the name of it so I dunno). But these chicks are WEIRD. Everyone I show them to tell me how strange they are and how they have never seen chickens act like they do. Even the man in charge of the entire thing told me as warning when I went to pick up the chickens that they were the weirdest chickens he had ever seen (and he has around 25-30 years of experience). It's hard to explain though, but it's just their attitude that's odd. They're about 9-8 weeks old right now. But, today in their run I saw them flying up, and it almost looked like they were trying to spur each other. The longer I have them the more paranoid I am that they are all roosters. Anyone have any experience with hens acting like this (and that it's not only roosters)? And, I would be fine with one rooster normally, but I can only have hens where I live. Thank you in advance!
