    Ok so today I saw this 14 week of BO Roo acting strangely

    to only this EE pullet

    Earlier I saw the cockerel chasing her a bit so I keep my "eye" on him. Later I"m standing there and he kind of squats down a bit opens his wings a bit and deliberately scrapes them with his feet making a feather scrape noise. I though...hu? so I saw him do it again around HER then no more.

    Does he like-like her and trying to "teenage" boy impress her or has he singled her out because he doesn't like her?

    LOL I had a feeling but geeze, out of 18 hens of assorted breeds he has "picked" her? muff and tuffless her? and she is only 10 weeks old and he is the first cockerel of 12 to make advancements LOL

    Of course I am not keeping 12 Roo's I am letting their actions determine who stays. So Mr. "fresh boy" better be nicer to his new girlfriend.

    its so funny, when he gets around her he just doesn't know what to do with himself. She on the other hand has no clue of his advancements and only buzzes by him
