In the Brooder
- Jan 29, 2011
I have 14 chickens. 3 of them are roosters. 1 a buff orpington, 1 a black cochin,1 a bantam rose comb. they have been together since a few weeks old. the bantam and the cochin fought a couple of times but the buff steps in between them and breaks it up. a really funny sight. its as if he is saying. ok boys, thats enough. they have never challenged him(but he is about 3 times their size. they seem to have taken on certain rolls as well. the buff stays with most of the hens when outside,the cochin stays at the henhouse most of the time and the bantam stays with the hens that go off in a different direction.
