I have an 8 month old rooster named Wyatt Earp.... when I brought him home (at 6 months) he had a rough time getting use to my girls. Actually they beat him up pretty bad. Since then, they have all finally been getting along. He seems to try to be the man in charge but the main hen still runs the show! He is not very agressive and I've never seen him mate with these hens (but I did see him with the others where I got him from, he had several roosters there that taught him well! LOL) When I'm cleaning out the hen house or working around the coop he just paces back and forth "fretting" up a storm. It is absolutely hillarious. He keeps an eye out on the girls while they are in the yard too. Is he normal or will he get more agressive later? Just wondering... I'd never get rid of him because he's quite entertaining! He reminds me of Harvey Coreman from the Carol Burnett Show!! (if anyone out there is old enought to remember that far back) LOL I though when I named him Wyatt Earp he'd be quite the gun slinger... instead he might should have been called "Peaches"!
