So I have a 4 month old Mille Fleur D'Uccle Roo. He crows and all, but seems to have no clue about mating or what his job is as a rooster. Granted, he is in a flock of 20 chickens, only 5 of which are anywhere close to his size. (2 silkies, 1 cochin bantam, and 2 OEGBs.) One of my chickens is a 10lb brahma. He is my only roo. We kept him becauuse he is small and hiis crow is very cute..not obnoxious and loud. However, I just gave away a 2 month old roo mutt (polish crested/ brown leghorn cross) who was crowng like crazy AND mating like crazy. What's the deal with Feisty? Is he just too small/young to do the real job of a roo? He doesn't even seem to care if the girls find their own food (my other roos have chirped like crazy to tell the ladies about tender morsels). He doesn't crow often at all (thank goodness) and actuallly doesn't even like to leave the run to free range when the girls go out. I guess it really doesn't matter all that much, but it was nice to see my other roos take care of their ladies and Feisty doesn't seem to care about anyone but himself. Just wondering what his issue may be. Ideas?
