We have one rooster with 6 hens, all are about 6 months old. The rooster has been crowing for a little over a month, the hens are not yet laying. So far, he seems to be well behaved, keeping order in the flock, and a watchful eye on their surroundings. He hasn't yet been aggressive with me... that I know of. Can anyone point me to a video of what the first signs are that I should be watching for, or will it be fairly obvious? Videos on youtube seem to be more for the funny factor (like an idiot enticing a rooster to chase/attack) than actually looking at the behavior. Clearly, if he runs at me or tries to peck me, I'd be able to figure it out. I'm asking more about the first, more subtle signs. Also, I have not been overly hands on with the flock (I'm not really interested in having them as close family pets, but rest assured that they all have a home til they go to the big Coop in the Sky!) (except for the rooster, if he turns out mean). When they're roosting at night, I try to get out to touch each one, which has made them generally less skittish with me during the day. I don't hand feed any of them, and haven't picked them up since they were chicks. They don't run unless I move towards them (including the rooster), and will come when I set out feed or treats. They are all lovely, healthy birds. thanks!
