I have 6 chickens....this summer I found out I pulled 3 roosters from those 6. Whatever....we are getting along...not every part of the day but for the most part everyone out there is ok. There is a pecking order for both the men and women. My biggest boy Miranda, a Buff, is the one in charge out there, his brother Sugar sticks with him for protection from my other Roo Aurora...an Americauna. Yes they still carry their girl names since that is what they are suppose to be. Anyway...They all use to crow, this is how I knew they were Roos. Sugar doesn't crow. He is at the bottom of the barrel, even wont go in the house part of the coop at night sometimes because he is being bossed around. Will he ever crow and did he stop because he is at the bottom of the list? He sometimes makes like a low growling sound and usually when he see's another Roo mating with a hen. Also Miranda, the big boy sounds like he is gargling at the same time he is crowing, is this normal? I just was wondering....I am sure they are all fine! My other question is they all want one hen. I have two Golden Wynadottes (Belle and Gilly) and one Americauna (Lady). Lady is a great bird and is my favorite. The other girls stick together, as they always have, and will sometimes chase her away from treats or other food. She is at the bottom, she is also the one the boys seem to always want to mate. They only jump on her, chase each other off to get to her, I NEVER see them on the other girls. Is there a reason for this? I just found their first eggs this morning. I know they are all feeling sexually active since they are laying but why with only one? I tried to search this already, I am sure I am not using the right words but I appreciate any help and thank you!
