I'm hoping that I have 1 roo and 4 hens. At least that's what I asked for.
How old are they? Agree pics 3/4 are a roo, and nobody else looks rooish right now.
I'm guessing between 10-12 weeks. The guy I got them from wasn't sure of age. They are bo btw. Thank you for your reply.
Looks like you got what you wanted!
Do the hens usually chase the roo off? They peck at him and don't want him eating with them. They are just mean to him. Is that going to change as they get older?
Thank you all for you're replies. I'm new to the chicken world.
As they mature the Roo will take charge, but mine still sleeps on the bottom roost he always has.
It will change when his testosterone starts flowing. He'll prove himself to them and start mating and they're eventually accept him as their rooster.
