I adopted silkie rooster a couple of weeks ago. He is pretty big boy for 5month old ( he is about 15" high) but very sweet boy. He is still afraid of me (I think, because when I try to pick him up, he will try to run) but when I pick him up, he will sit on my lap forever. But he won't act like my girls!! He doesn't eat much. I put food out about 1/2cup for him. He will take 2days to finish all. He doesn't like bugs or worms. He won't eat treats like water melon, scratch or breads. He won't scratch ground or eat grass like girls do. Right now, he is in 12'x12' fenced in area during the day, and going to rabbit hatch for night. Some day, I would like him to free range with my girls. But he won't eat treats like girls, so not sure if I let him free range, I could catch him or not... MY QUESTIONS ARE... 1. Why he won't eat much??? Because he is rooster? or because he is small eater?? 2. Am I going to have hard time to catch him if I do free range? or he will follow girls and will learn to come to me?? Thanks!!!
