    I have a 6 week old cochin rooster chick who seems to be keeping some others from eating. He runs up to others are seems to be intimidating them. Is this just a normal chicken behavior that I should let play out or maybe find him a new home. We can't keep roosters anyhow so he would go from brooder to another home anyhow. Thanks

    Since you can't keep him anyhow I would go ahead and re-home him now if at all possible. Otherwise it's a good idea to always offer more than one feeder. A bossy chick can't control two feeders at once. [​IMG]
