Today I noticed something really weird.

The rooster was attacking a cockerel.

He bit on his head and kept biting him for a good give seconds

And then he tried to dance around this cockerels mate, a pullet. These two are inseparable and always together. These two are getting mature and this pullet will lay an egg soon.



Then, I saw this rooster run and attack the cockerel who was simply having some food.

Sometimes, I have to dehumanise my chickens or I feel converting my rooster to bbq.

I see nothing odd about that in the least.
I would probably do the same thing.
Last thing your rooster wants is a cockerel coming in and trying to take his spot as head of the flock.

How many pullets do you have, and are those the only two males?

Three hen, one pullet, one rooster and one cockerel who I thought was surely going to be a hen.

Guess we are gonna make the rooster into dinner after all and get more pullet.
