    ok since red is probably older than oscar hes obtained the position of alpha.. in other words he is at the top of the "pecking order" oscar probably want crow because the other rooster does and oscar probably will get second dibs on the hens after red has his share first... they will be fine together just one will always be dominat over the other... goodluck [​IMG]
