    That should say "wimpy"lol. I have kind of a dumb question. I have a little BO/ Faverolle mix rooster that is about 17 weeks old, and the poor guy is scared to death of my ladies. For awhile he seemed to be bucking up a bit, he will hang out with some of the lower ranking girls, even danced for them now and then. But as soon as the "big girls" come around he runs away. Yesterday when I was tossing out scratch one of the girls squatted and inadvertently touched him, I thought he was going to die of fright! My question is, will he ever come around? I got him so I could try and raise my own chicks. Has anyone ever had a rooster to shy to do the deed?
