    Ok, so I did end up w/ to roos. [​IMG] But one doesnt act like a roo at all! He crows VERY rarely ( I think I've heared him MAYBE 3 times), never fights, and is the sweetest chicken of the bunch. On the other hand, the "man-ly Roo" is EVIL!!! But, the 2 dont fight...Is it b/c they were raised together? They haven't started fighting yet, so what are the odds that they will? Thay are around 12 week now.
    TAT!

    The docile roo may just know his place in the pecking order, or maybe he's a late bloomer?[​IMG]

    I have the same here, I have 3 roos that have been raised together from chickes and they dont fight. The youngest one is the boss. He does tell the othes to shut up sometimes. I think they just know there place.
