So I have 6 Barred Rock Pullets and 5 Gold Laced Wyandottes. Those are my layers. I also have 22 (started with 26) heavy breed cockerals, they happen to be Barred Rocks and Buff Orpingtons. They don't know it but one of them gets to be our rooster and then gets a reprieve. Right now the boys are the nicest and friendliest, the layers couldn't care about me at all. Matter of fact one of the Barred Rock Cockerals hopped on my foot and hitched a ride around the pen today. They run up to me looking for goodies while the girls are all much more cautious. Anyway, what do I look for in a good roo? Obviously not aggressive (hormones haven't kicked in yet so no one is showing any signs of that) but what else do I look for? I'm guessing one that tells the ladies when he's found good food, and keeps a lookout for trouble? Any other things I should know?
