Let me introduce Leopold my golden laced wyandotte cockerel: He and the flock of 7 girls turned 4 months this week. He is currently going through his adolescent molt and the beautiful rooster feathers are coming in. He is finally growing tail feathers too. He has had some sort of bunny but with just the under plumes covering his behind. He is considerably bigger than the girls and as it stands he is second in command. Polly the BR pullet is is the boss and has given him a beating or two. Other than being a greedy bird and bullying for the front seat at the feeder, he has been quite pleasant with the pullets and the humans. I haven't noticed any aggression towards myself or other people. He has crowed sporadically for the last 5 or six weeks, but only in the morning (never before 6am) and only in the coop. He hasn't crowed at all the last 7 days. I'm rather pleased with his lack in calling out loud, but am wondering if he is a late bloomer or just a real mellow boy? Any opinions?
