Hello everyone! This is my third year keeping chickens, but the first time I am (hopefully) keeping a cockerel...he is incredibly friendly and sweet and I am absolutely enamoured with him. He was bought as a pullet, but...it's pretty clear he isn't now. He's currently about 8 weeks old, and a Cuckoo Maran. I had plans for my first rooster, but I sort of fell in love, so they've changed. My question is, though, I've never kept a cockerel before and I have heard they can get to be very nasty...what kind of resources do all of you recommend I read? What changes can I expect from the sweet little bird I have now? Any advice? Do they require different nutrition? (I've currently got them all on flock raiser since they're slowly integrating.) He's currently content to be stroked or sit with me, hop up for treats etc, and is very good with his three girls, all his age.
