roos are protection to hens, they will put thier own lives on the line, so that the girls can get away...cept maybe for ours, they'd be like "AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH GET ME OUTTA HERE, HOT ROOSTERS FIRST,HENS AND ANNOYING CHICKS WAAAAAY LAST!"
Quote:I see many good things about having the rooster, I would not keep chickens without having a rooster, in fact I will soon have a bunch of
roosters beside my old one which is a treasure (keeps my hens safe so far).
In fact I like roosters crowing so much I am getting Longcrowers since my growing Bantam roosters will crow not loud enough and not long enough.
But I am a free thinker with very strong musical background.
Roosters crowing is one of the many songs of nature.
