    I have no idea how old this chook is. It still makes chick sounds, although it's voice seems to be 'breaking' at the moment. We suspect it might be a Brahma cross. What do you guys think. I have another Roo, a real fighter, and although these two chooks walk behind the main flock, my big Roo doesn't fight with it?

    i would assume so if there is enuff room for them .. & if they have been together already . i had two sets of roos thet were together ( i had alot of roos , i got screwed at TSC) the ones in the run got along fine .. a cochin & a silkie.. & the other two that were together were oegb & they never fought . now when the oegb got out of the fenced yard & went to the run , they fought thru the run fencing & that = bloody combs!! so i guess you go with the flow . if they fight i guess you should pick who you like the best & try to find the other a good home ... good luck. he is pretty cute [​IMG]

    Normally 2 cockerels or roosters work out the pecking order, though the rule of thumb is 1 roo to 10 hens/pullets. An exellent rule and excuse for getting more chooks!

    well, if he turns out to be a Roo, there's no reason why I can't have 3 wake up calls in the morning......[​IMG]
