I have 3 supposed to be polish pullets. They jump on my mature rooster and my goose. They are horribly mean to all the other chickens. They were hatched middle of February. At first I thought they might be roosters but no crowing no definite saddle feathers no definite large wattles.

I have noticed they have started to sneak up on my rosters blind side with puffed feathers. He mostly ignores them for now because they are so small compared to him. Just yesterday he tid bitted the WCB one and the polish jumped on top of him. The rooster just shrugged it off. This morning one snuck up on the 5 week old gosling and jumped on top of it. They have ACRES to forage. They have many food or water bowls.

what is wrong with these polish!?!?

if they were cockerels wouldn’t my 3 year old mature rooster with a take no shit attitude whoop their butts instead of ignoring them?

the rooster has been around I’m sure he would know better than me!

Going by their behavior it really sounds as if they are cockerels. Can you post pictures?
Unfortunately I’m waiting on a replacement from insurance my phone camera is no good. My rooster tolerates them and tid bits them which is NOT his normal behavior with rude immature cockerels. That’s why I’m so confused.

All Pullets.
Why are they so mean if they have plenty of space any ideas? My rooster is a big old gentleman and my poor gosling tries to stay away from them but gets harassed by only the polish. I have like 3 different bowls and many waters . They have acres of wooded e Texas to roam. Why do they want to be so mean to the rooster and the goose they are less aggressive with the hens.
