I have had a Ameraucana rooster for a few weeks now and he has never crowed or made something louder than a cluck. We got him at about 5 or 6 months old. Yesterday morning however he was just crowing away and trying to start fights with the dogs. I put a crow collar on him but he got it off and proceded to yell at the dogs from the coop. I put it back on and he hasn't gotten it off again but he is still trying to pick fights and running like the devil is after him when I go to put him up for the night. He seems more intelligent than the average chicken and I don't want to cull him so does this 'hormonal stage' ever end? I really hope it does because I don't want to kill my pretty boy.
