In the Brooder
- Oct 25, 2013
I have two white plymouth rock roosters and only one of them acts like a rooster! The second is definitely a rooster with his larger size and big tail but he has a short comb, doesn't crow, doesn't hump the hens, and isn't aggressive. He doesn't fight the other rooster, but does act like a leader to a batch of our hens. The two roos were raised together so at first I thought it was just the pecking order of dominance, the bigger one showed dominance at such an early age I figured the second roo just didn't want to fight for it. But now he is old enough (born october) that he should be getting on some hens and crowing, but still nothing. We believe everyone must contribute so since he isn't laying eggs or fertilizing any he might be going to the stew pot soon. Is it possible he would be getting on hens when nobody is looking? But why isn't he crowing? I swear he's a rooster lol.
