Ok this is a continuation from my other post on "What Breed / Gender is this?" So about 16 weeks ago I hatched 6 beautiful chicks. My sister in-law took 3 and I kept the other 3 to add to the rest of my flock of 3. She ended up with a roo and she brought him back today to live with us because her husband was not very enthusiastic about having a roo. When she brought him over we let him out of his travel case and let him roam about. Of course he went right over to the pen with my girls in it. They all seemed to be getting along so I let him in (which was stupid), then him and one of my pullets (still on the fence of being a roo or pullet) starting staring each other down and hopped up to fight. We seperated them and put him in another pen by himself. All the other girls seem ok with him. Can a hen jump up and fight like that or is it strictly a roo thing? how long will it take for them to get used to each other or will they never get a long? i will really like to keep both of them the pullet in question is a beautiful black orph and the roo is a splash orph roo both about 16 weeks old.
