Conducted brief experiement over last 14 days. I placed a dozen 8-week old brooder raised chicks in a 6' x 8' x 3' coop with an adult game rooster. They were forced to roost in close proximity. He even moved lower to be near chicks at night. First couple days rooster was a little irritated by chicks that would step on his head to get food. Therafter, rooster began tolerating chicks and tidbitting. This morning I released group. Rooster led chicks about yard just like a hen would. Rooster made a sound that was a good approximation of clucking and chicks followed. Scoob (dog) decided to go chicken bowling and rooster positioned himself between dog and chicks and then chased Scoob off. Problem with setup is rooster pure game. Eventually he met up with free range game and broody had to be collected to end trial. Next round will be with 1/2 game 1/2 dominique to see if can be repeated without the combative nature screwing things up.
