    I searched about the squatting and besides getting ready to lay, it seems to be a submission behavior. Will a rooster at 10 weeks old squat? They had gotten out of the fence and we were trying to corral them back in, not really chasing them or anything, but directing them when it happened.

    Roosters most likely wont squat.
    Hens do it when theyre ready to lay!

    Quote:I didn't "want" any roosters. Unfortunately all I have is roosters, and this less than manly one. Its still a baby so hopefully it will man up soon.
