    Does anyone else have a sissy rooster?

    I have a White Leghorn x Silkie mix rooster who is very pretty. He started crowing in a grow out pen but when I put him in the outside coop with his dad and the rest of the chickens, he quit. His dad has now been gone for a few months, and Socks is still the biggest sissy in the coop. lol He runs around like a mad man when we give them treats just to get away from the "flying food". Its the funniest thing to watch.

    My Coop
    My Show-girl rooster lived in a separate coop with a female Show-girl and I never saw him "do the deed" with her. Maybe he regarded her as a sister, but that never stopped the roos in the other coop. He did boss around some other hens when free ranging, and I once caught his standing on the back of a jumbo Cochin twice his size but he didn't seem to know what to do. He didn't really run away from the other roosters when free ranging in the yard.

    I wouldn't say this to DH [​IMG] , but I consider our d'uccle a sissy rooster. When I read of roosters standing up to cats, and dogs and much, much worse, I think "Wow! Really???" Our little roo is the first to run for cover at any sign of trouble [​IMG] But the girls like him and he has a pretty crow.
