Hello. I have two Mottled Houdans and have a question about their disposition. I have noticed that the Houdans are nearly as 'bright' as my Americaunas, White Silkies or Polish Laced. The rest of the chickens know the daily routine, but for some reason the Houdans just don't get it. When I put the goodie tray in the coop all the chickens know what is coming and wait for it. The Houdans just walk around like they are oblivious. Even when the other chickens are chowing down on the goodies, the Houdans continue to just walk around. They eventually make it over and start getting goodies. In the morning when I let everyone out, everyone else runs out, but the Houdans just wander around and it takes awhile for them to come out. When the cats are next to the coop, the other chickens move away, but again the Houdans go right next to the fence and look at the cats. Are Houdans just not afraid of anything or do they just not 'get it'? One more question about the Houdans. How can you tell the differance between the hen and rooster? I have looked on the internet but no luck in distiguinishing the differance. Neither has crowed yet. Thanks.
