    I have a rooster that is most definitely the lowest in the pecking order, I was wondering how many other people have roosters low in the pecking order. I've created a poll to find out.

    For The poll please answer using your rooster lowest on the pecking order

    I may have ended up collecting too many roosters. I have 3 roosters and only 7 laying hens...But one rooster is at the tippy top, and the other 2 are the lowest except for the 4 pullets that just started laying. They all bow to "their" small rooster. My poor silkie rooster isn't even part of the pecking order as far as I can tell. I mean the hens don't attack him like they do the youngest roo, but they don't pay him any attention either. He is just sort of on the outside all alone.
