    I have a 9-10 week black cochin that is mothering a 4-5 week old barred rock. The barred rock has ben trying to hitch rides on the cochins back since they were brought to our home. Is this little bird lazy or trying to practice being a rooster ? It's kind of funny to watch this as the barred rock is considerably smaller than the cochin. Any ideas? Thanks.
