    Many folks on my state board say that their roos tell the hens when there is a hawk or some other predator about; I have never seen this behavior in my roos, but I have several. What are your thoughts on a singe roo vs multiple roos and there desire to protect their hens? Do they lose this behavior when there are many hens and roos together? Ideas? Terri O
