My Sebastopol Gander (blue) seems to be a timid boy. I got him recently with a Sebastopol hen (Buff) and one of my Toulouse hens has fallen in love with the Sebastopol hen, they walk around together, sit together and preen each other which is fine but the Toulouse is starting to shoo the gander away from the hen he came with. He's only 1 year old and the Pilgrim gander at his last house killed the other Sebastopol gander that was there, the owners came home too late to stop it. I'm wondering if experiencing that trauma could have made him hesitant to stand up for himself with another bird, even a hen? Could next Spring's hormonal rush make him feel like a real boy again? I have 8 hens so I want to get another Sebastopol gander, or have my pair make one, I don't want the gander's shyness, or this Toulouse hen, to get in the way of that. Spring hormones will transform him, right? I hope, I hope, I hope.
