Hello! My chickens still don't do the submissive squat for my rooster, we have had him for 4 and a half months now. Maybe i'm being too impatient but I just have this feeling that they really hate this guy. They are smaller hens, americana's, while he is a brahma. One of my hens has completely stopped laying roughly 3 weeks after I brought him home. One of my girls especially is small, easter egger, and he seems like he really doesn't like her. When she walks over to get some scratch, he chases her off. Honestly though, he doesn't crow that much, mess with us, and he does make sure all the ladies go into the coop on time. I just worry that the girls don't like him, I'd have no problem getting a new rooster.. in fact i've greatly considered it and looked around just in case. Then again, if I end up getting a terror of a rooster then that might kinda suck. lol.
