I'm curious... I got some day old chicks from mypetchicken.com that hatched on July 25th which wouldnput them at almost 7 months old now I suppose (wow that was fast!) I got a variety of chicks, a bantam polish, a regular polish, a mills fleur bantam and a white Cochin. The whole Cochin is the only male I have. The pulleys have let to lay any pulley eggs yet, nor has the roo crowed (not that I've heard any way) could this just be related to the season here in NJ? They are inside when it's super cold, but I have been letting them roam the backyard with my adult flock of hens. The pullets follow him all over- he's clearly the leader of his little flock but at this age, I thought he'd be acting more rooster-ish. He's pretty docile around the rest, hasn't tried to mate with any of them either.. but like I said, I haven't seen any eggs from the pullets yet so I don't know if maybe that will trigger the behavior? Any input from the chicken pros out there?
