    So puberty must be sneaking up on my 5 week old little rooster. For the past week or so he has been the "leader of the pack" and especially calls the shots at bedtime. He will complain at all the ladies until they follow him back to the coop and go inside for bed. It is the most adorable thing [​IMG]
    Of course my older two pullets do their own thing and he has learned to leave them alone [​IMG]

    My two are over 12 weeks and don't have a clue....probably wise since there are 16 hens.
