    Is he trying to show dominance? Is this peculiar for roos? He acts like the same wing fancy dance.. Come look i found food sticks wing out..that he does before he gets on his ladies...lol

    Roosters will do the dance to humans they are trying to dominate too, so the dance has two purposes, domination and luring the girls in.

    It's a sure sign he's thinking about or going to attack.

    How old are these birds?
