Wally is only a few months old and was running with a lot of roosters, many of them older and more dominant. No doubt it will take him some time to decide he can be dominant without getting a beat down, but I'm sure he will figure it out eventually. Ameraucanas seem to be the most possessive of any of my roos, so I expect him to become a real "lady's man" in your coop. The hens love the beards and muffs on the Am roos, they often pick them and the roos allow it because they just dote on their ladies. Seems to be a breed trait and the people who win shows often keep their best roos isolated until show season is over to keep their facial feathers intact.The very pale green darkened in the refrigerator. Got another pale pinkish one. Haven't eaten any of them yet - gotta get rid of the storebought ones first.
Haven't heard Wally crow yet. How old is he? Also, unless Boo is running around the run, the girls are quite quiet.
