I recently bought a new Rooster to add to my flock. My first rooster is 6 months old and taking good care of the ladies. The test hatch was 16 out of 18 eggs so I know he is doing his job. But with 17 hens and another 15 pullets growing and soon to join the flock full time I thought he might need a little help lol. So we added an 11 month old Lavender Orp roo. He has assimilated into the flock well. Had him about 2 weeks now. What im wondering is when/if he will start acting like a roo? LOL he struts around nice but if a hen runs by him he runs away. When might I hear him crow? And will he in time help our other roo with the girls or will he just hang out and end up being the hens "best friend" lol.
