What boys!!!! I have 4 roos in my flock of 17. All four hit that lovely stage at the same time, since they were purchased at the same time as chicks from TSC - 15 weeks old now. All 4 have raging boy hormones. They really like my older ladies, who know the drill, but ugh. When one starts the rest want to do it too -at the same time. I've been keeping an eye on my girls, thus far just mussed feathers, no plucking, no bad. They turn around and whomp the boys if they get rough or gang up. But really! I feel almost embarrassed my DD's swingset is by the run! (She 2.5). Almost embarrassed...not enough to do anything, nor would I. ( I was looking at flushed horse embryos for embryo transfer when I was three.) Of course, all four have crowing contests all day long, which don't bother me, and apparently our neighbor really likes it. Just waiting to see if anyone is going to end up in freezer camp...one of the most dominant roos came after me a few weeks ago, but a whack from the flipflop chastised him. At this point, if any of the boys try anything on us, they will be dinner. No chances with DD, and she enjoys them too much to have a roo come after her. But holy chicken lovin'!
