We have never had a rooster before. We probably should have researched the topic a bit more. He is only 10 weeks old. I guess I was under the impression that they are pretty "tough". Well he is not. I feel bad because he is so young. The hens do not like him at all. We let the hens out of the cage. So he has only been with them for about an hour with us right there. He is even scared of us! When my son goes to feed him he runs to a corner and stays there. Literally for hours. He will not even look at you. Can you give me some advice on what we should do? How old should a rooster be before he can take care of himself? Is it normal for him to be that scared? He was around people before we took him but he was in a large pen with a lot of chickens.
