    Ok I have this Serama who has a BIG attitude. He is a very wise rooster and is VERY VERY bold. Here he is just added in with the hens for the first time. He's easy to catch so I just put him on the ground knowing I could catch him if I had to. He is as old as the girls here and recently I had to move him into his own bachelor pad because he was overmating the young D'uccles I had him with and beating up the male D'uccle. Here he trys his wilds with the girls and shows them a fancy dance he learned recently [​IMG] He's so cute! I just love him...his name is Kelly (Kell Bell) is what we usually call him. Tonight he also choose to roost in with the big girls so I let him. He wanted to be with the chickens I guess. LOL He has never been shown the hen house but he still followed the girls into bed tonight.
    Kelly is the little black and white guy, the hens are kind of scared of him [​IMG] [​IMG] They never messed with him even ONCE! It's so cute...he drops his wings and does this sideways dance for them. Does this mean he is interested in mating with them??

    His colors are amazing...he has some red stripes on his back too along with the green, white and black. It's beautiful...the only prob he has is some feathering on his legs...OH well, He's a good rooster and likes to take care of the hens lol.​

    Yup, that's his little rooster dance. They'll drop one wing and parade around for the hens before coming closer to jump on them (roosters don't know much about foreplay). Notice he advances toward each hen and they all run off. He's been dissed. Poor guy. [​IMG]
