So, I was beginning to wonder if our 14 week old Golden Polish rooster was not going to be super "manly" with our 14 week old Australorpe hens........Well, today the hubby was holding a hen for the neighbor girl to pet the hen. The hen was calm and docile, but making that "purring" kind of low murmur while the girl was petting her. Out of the blue--that little rooster came around her and pecked her little hand!! The little girl yanked it back, but said it did not hurt and she was fine. Shocked, but fine. Guess he is "The Man" and was protecting his gals!
