Hello, I am new to BYC. I have 4 Orpingtons and 2 silver laced wyandottes. I believe one is a rooster, but I am not quite sure. They are about 18 to 19 weeks. My rooster has been running up to me. He doesn't peck me but he gets really close to me. The other two don't even look at me. My two girls walk around together but my rooster lingers around away from them but still stays close. Today, I walked out the door and he almost bumped into me! But then he ran away back to the other two. Is he trying to protect his flock? And in the future do you think he might be aggressive towards me? I have hand raised them and every day I give them fruits and veggies so maybe he is thinking I have food? I'm just worried because the other two don't even come near me most of the time. Thank you! The picture on the left is the rooster (I think) that I am concerned about. The one on the right is another chicken that I am not sure about gender-wise. Thank you for the replies!
