  1. he loves being the provider! It's so cute. You can tell it makes him feel good about himself, being able to give his girlies such yummy yummies.

    Sweet! My roo doesn't do that as yet, but he and the girls are still young. Right now it's every man for himself!

    I gave mine some birdseeds/BOSS mix the other night and the roo was clucking for his ladies to come and get it.

    They refused - they'd rather eat bugs.
    So he ended up eating most of it anyway.

    I'm glad he turned out to be such a gentleman!

    Just make sure you give it to the roo first, instead of giving it directly to the girls. My son likes to give 'his' millie hen worms, and her roo was not too happy about that. He got a bit feisty with my son! Thought my son was trying to steal his girl I guess! [​IMG]
