    If not, you don't know what you're missing. The hens have their own personalities, but that roo will give you a show you won't easily forget. Our 20 week old cockerel will stand ready to fight on one side of the fence, as our 90 lb. German Shepherd is on the other side. And he is constantly checking things out.........maybe just a little nosy. [​IMG] But they take their job seriously. They're a lot of fun to watch.

    I hope he doesn't get aggressive. We wouldn't want to have to get rid of him.

    I've got 10 little roo's that I'm a temporary carer for (my neighbors chooks), they can be a lot of nuisance and fun but not when you have 4 or 5 charging you at the same time. Sheesh the little buggers.

    My Henry is funny too. He is the perfect gentleman with everything except raisins! We can throw down a piece of bread or some boss and he will call Snowflake right over and act so proud of himself but if you have raisins... he will just about fly through the air to eat them ALL! I have to push him out of the way so that she can have ONE. LOL

    I adore my roos, even Impy the crazy cockerel.
