    My BO rooster has been acting funny lately.Stays out in the run and always in the same cornor.He just stands there.Sometimes his feathers on the back of his head will stand up and he'll walk around a bit.Is he sick or something? He looks fine and still is friendly. [​IMG] Don't get it.

    Maybe there is something in that corner he considers a threat to him and the hens. [​IMG]

    They all act like nothing new.I checked the cornor out and nothing seems out of the ordinary unless at one time there was a critter near the fence right there.No signs of force entry though.fence is dug into the ground and I have wood border all along the bottom and the fence is stapled to the wood.I had missing birds last year so I have really made sure nothing is getting in or out.[​IMG] I even have deer netting over top my run in case of hawks.
    [​IMG] Can't figure him out. He's about 20 weeks old.I have another rooster in there but they get along fine.My other rooster is not aggressive at all and both are very friendly. Maybe he's just shy with the ladies.[​IMG]
