I've got 26 chickens... 1 Japanese bantam roo and 2 Partridge rock roos. Now, one of the Partridge Roos, named Rocky, has started a new thing. He purrs! I'll be sitting on the porch step. Right next to our porch is a little weeded area, where the chickens seldom go. He likes to go up in there and start a little clicking/purring noise. He sounds like a little car! Is this a dominance thing? Whenever he does it, I do it back and after a moment he walks away and stops. Maybe I'm just freaking him out? He only does it in THAT spot... so maybe it's cause he thinks it's a good place to lay eggs or something? But I don't think rooster's care that much about what happens to the eggs. And I'm having a HARD time keeping those roo's off the pullets! I have to go over there and knock Rocky or Shogun off a female every other minute! Course, then they run, but still! Can anyone help me with my purring rooster? And info would help! Thanks!
