Change of pace on roo behavior: submissive roos - The old boy: Sassafras is a 30 wk. old Salmon Favarolle, and the past few days, he has begun squatting for me. He's definitely (NOT - based on following sage comments, which if you're new to chicken keeping, you might want to read!) a roo, with spurs to prove it. He has yet to crow, though talks a low, raspy blue streak in certain (challenging to him) situations, like when one of his hens hops up on my shoulder, or I'm in the coop & he comes in to supervise. I've yet to see him, from afar or otherwise, mount a hen, though they're all squatting fools. He's a real cream puff kinda' guy. Anyone else have casper milktoast roos? And if so, what breed is yours?
