    with my rooster snickles
    i have a very very small bantam rooster
    probably about twenty weeks old
    he is missing a tail feather and will sometimes put his tail to the side and walk at an angle towards me
    do those things correlate with each other in any way shape or form
    he also looks like an oreo flavored game chicken if that helps

    He is 'dancing' for you. Here's a youtube video of one dancing for a hen.

    He considers you HIS, perhaps the highest compliment you can get from a rooster.

    They dance for hens to mate....but it is also is a dominance thing and can be prelude to an attack.
