seems our Rooster is either getting his feisty on or is rough getting the gals back into line. I understand that there has to be a dominant male, my flock consists of 1 large rooster of unknown breed, 1 white crested black polish rooster, 2 partridge Plymouth rock hens, 1 silver Wyandotte hen, one unknown breed that we believe so far to be a hen, and a RIR hen. They we're all raised together so they get along pretty well up until about this week. The large rooster has started pulling on a couple of the other chickens, most I have seen have been the gals but due to the feathers found in the coop it must be the polish too. My girls are just appauled by his behavior, but I'm leaving that discussion until I know a little more about chicken behaviors. ALl these birds (most all of our birds are & will be hand raised), The big guy is 17 weeks old the polish and 5 hens bought together are 12 weeks old and the little white chicken Gonzo which we really are unsure of at this time is 13 weeks old Is this time enough for them to be doing that Chickeney Wild Thang...?
