Hello, I am Rob from North Georgia. (1) Are you new to chickens / when did you first get chickens? Yes, when I was a kid we had chicken houses, but this is different. I got 6 hens about three months ago. (2) How many chickens do you have right now? 7, 6 hens and a rooster. (3) What breeds do you have? 4 Australorp/buff orpington's [FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Hens 1 [/FONT]Ameraucana[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif] /EE Hen 1 [/FONT]Ameraucana[FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]/Game fowl[/FONT] Hen (currently broody, siting on RIR eggs) 1 Supposed to be Amerucauna Rosster but actually EE. (4) How did you find out about BackYardChickens.com? Every time I would google a question about my birds, I would find most answers on this site. (5) What are some of your other hobbies? I do computer stuff. (6) Tell us about your family, your other pets, your occupation, or anything else you'd like to share. I am married and have 4 daughters, I suppose a boy was not in the mix. My youngest is 3 weeks old, and oldest is 10 going on 18 (she thinks). I have a question about my Rooster (Jack). Ok, he is pretty big and obviously a rooster. I got him from a guy down the road that has a lot of different full breed of chickens. He sold him to me as an Ameraucana but he is obviously not (which is ok by me, I like him). He is supposed to be 19 weeks old, he is very afraid of the hens, all they have to do is look at him and he dips his head and bolts... He spends most of his time sitting on the roost's and only gets down for a few min each day. I have only had him for about 4 days now, but yesterday I let all of them out to the yard (which I normally do when I get home) and he wouldn't come out. I did go in and bring him out and he ate some grass and then went back into the coop and hopped back onto the roost. He doesn't attempt to crow and he is sooo timid... I am worried that he won't "Rooster UP"... Should I be worried? Jack 5 Hens. Hazel sitting on some eggs.
