Hello All! We have 3 Rhode Island Red roosters in a flock of 25 chickens. We got them day old in late spring this year. They are sexually mature, crow just fine, are big in body, but their spurs are still stumpish. I've read book after book on chicken keeping and almost all of them mention Roosters letting the hens get to the choice morsels fist and often offering their favorite hen a treat. Well, MINE DON"T. They are big greedy pigs who bully the hens away from the food, steal the treats and run off with them and generally act selfishly when it comes to food. Other than that they are fairly nice birds, none of the hens have bare backs (thought they are opportunist rapist chickens - no dancing here, just surprise!) and they have never been aggressive towards people. Will they outgrow this food selfishness and will I eventually have the roosters that all the books talk about who "let the hens go first, and allow them to eat the good food first". Or is this just fantasy?? Thanks!
