This is my first flock of chickens. I got a straight run, so 14 hens, and 9 Roosters. They are 15 weeks old this week. My Buff Brahma Roo who is top of the pecking order is always grabbing the other chickens necks feathers... the hens and the Roos. If anyone is close enough when he struts by, he grabs their neck feathers and doesn't let go. They literally have to pull away to get free, and then "Britches" (the Brahma roo) stands there proudly with a beak full of feathers. Now I know they have a pecking order, but I am just wondering if this is common behavior for the dominant Rooster, or if this is a bit over the top, jerky, mean behavior. I am in the process of deciding which Roo to keep as the flock protector, and would like to keep this guy, as he seems to be a leader the others willingly follow, BUT I don't want a Roo that is causing the hens unnecessary stress by bullying them more than what is needed or usual. So, anyone have experience with their top Roo...is this common behavior or over the top rude? THANKS!
