Quote:Hi Rookie! These roosters are not typically nasty creatures, fact they should be very non-aggressive birds, great protectors of their flocks and they should be great free rangers. Since these chicks are still so young you may be able to increase the amount of handling that you do with them and get them more used to you. I agree with pinkchick here. Granted I am relatively new to wellies, but I hatched 4 several weeks ago (2pullets, 2 roos) and the 2 fellas are by far the most friendly, amiable chickies I have. The come running and flapping when they hear me approach. Will eat out of my hand and, most importatnly, are gentle and freindly with the other birds. We'll see what happens when the hormones really start pumping, but so far so good.
