i had one male chick from a hatch a month ago and had sold the rest. Kept him in the brooder pen to teach some newly hatched chicks how to eat and drink.
The pen is outside with a heat lamp but it got down to 32 last night. Went out this morning and the little one month old rooster had all these 3-day old chicks (13 of them) underneath him.

Aw, what a sweatheart! What breed is your rooster? He's a keeper, I'd say. I've never heard of a 1mo old chick sheltering that many chicks before. I didn't even thick they could cover that many
He is a pretty cool guy :cool:
