My little Bantam Rooster Orlie is about 7 weeks old. He is the only Roo I have and have a total of 11 birds. Orlie is one of the most friendly, he will ho up on my lap let me pet him till he falls asleep. I was told to not get friendly with a rooster because they need to be at the bottom of the pole? If I allowed him to become friendly he would be trouble when he is grown. I need you advice oh wise ones. It doesn't make sense to me to ignore him when it seems as if his nature is lovable. I admit ignorance to raising chickens as these are my first, but I am pretty good at raising well adjusted humans, dogs and cats.
