I have 5 seven week old chicks, they are still in the brooder in my house and I just love them to pieces. They all have names and are my pets for sure. I have one I know is a roo but I am going to try and keep him. However, I have another one I am 75% sure is a roo and I think I am going to give him back to the breeder. He is the alpha and can be slightly aggressive at times, even with the hens. But I love him and he has such a cool personality. He will come when I call him by name and he is very protective of the flock, a super smart bird. My flock is like a little family; they all still sleep in a huddle and if one is missing they cry until they are all together again. That said, I never even wanted one roo but I am going to give it a try since I have what seems to be a sweet, quieter one. But I dont want two. I am just SO SAD about it and cant even think about putting him in a box and he will be in a new home. Can anyone relate?
