I've got two hens and a rooster who is younger. I'm not sure how old he is. We didn't raise him. Anyway, for the first couple of weeks, my girls were horribly mean to him. After that, they accepted him, but they still seem dominant over him. He stands back and lets them eat, which I've been told is normal rooster behavior. But if he's eating something and one of the girls decides she wants it, she runs him off. And it's not that he's timid. He chases my little rat terrier all over the yard. He's so funny. The feathers on his neck stand up and watch out dog! He doesn't attempt to hurt him. Just chases him off. Anyway, do I have a normal rooster? Oh and he's also not crowing yet. When will that start?
