    Yep, but my hens don't fight with my roosters. So I'm curious about the pecking order. I want details[​IMG].

    Rhody is a bantam RIR cockerel, he was dancing for Bantam Cochin x EE Peach, as part of the mating ritual... but she chest bumped him and they sparred. I got some nice flaring pics too... I wouldn't mind if she bred with any of my bantam boys, although I really want her to choose Henry, the bantam buff Cochin that is so famous for his clown shoes... but, he's immature yet... and not aggressive for her or towards her...

    I put them together this afternoon, they hung out for a bit, then he went wide around her and rejoined the bachelor group

    A couple of my pullets will stand up to Hephaestus (our cockerel) when he tries to get to high-handed with them. They will raise hackle feathers and jump at him. it's really funny to watch because he always gets this look like "What do I do now, she's not obeying me"? [​IMG]

    Coco and Honey are working on their synchronized treat eating with the hopes that it becomes the newest chicken olympic sport.
