    Now That You Mentioned It Yea I Have an Older Rooster Out With Him Do You Know If I Let Him Be Alone With Hens For a While He Will Start To Act More Like a Rooster

    I have four roos, and only one will crow. Sometimes the beta roo (second in command) will crow in the morning - but it's rare.

    That is most definitely a rooster. Pretty boy!

    Brahmas are slower to mature, also. That is a rooster, he's just taking his time. They're also more docile, thus less likely to challenge the dominant roo by crowing or trying to mate, at least until he's older and more developed.

    OK Maybe That's It and He Is More Friendly But Is It Normal If One Of My Other Roosters Tries To Maid With Him I Know It Sounds Kind Of Gay But I Have a Black Laced Polish Rooster Who Tries To Maid With Him I Already Locked Him Up Just To Be Safe Maybe He Confuses Him W/ a Hen
