both rooroos. So maybe I just missed the thread, so if anyone wants just share a link that'd be alright. I'm new to the whole rooster thing. I got this cool guy from a very nice lady and he's around 6 months old. He seems very nice to my hens and the girls he came with. I have another roo that snuck into the mix, he's the sub and VERY easy to be around. My main guy so far has been very respectfull of my space and scoots away from me when I enter his space. He was friendly with his last family, but I don't particularly care about friendliness, just not being a jerk. Any idea around the time many of them get "roostery"? He's already mating the hens and crowing. I just would like to keep him either subordinate to me, or at least respectful of my space and time with the girls. My hens flock to me when I get out to the coop, and I'do hate for him to try to put me out for taking the girls lol. Does anyone think he may keep this sense of "you do you and I'll take care of me", or will maybe get more aggressive? Sorry for the essay. I just don't know how long it takes for them to realize they are a big boy with dangerous weapons haha.
