I have 3 - 18 week old EE's. 1 roo and 2 pullets. The rooster just started crowing last week and this week is practicing his mating on the two other EE's. I also have 6 other pullets that are 24 weeks. 2 are laying, 3 are point of lay, and 1 I have no idea is she is anywhere near ready. Right now the 3 EE's run away and still are at the very bottom of the pecking order. I want the EE to become head hauncho and take over as leader of my flock. I also want him to mate my other ladies and hopefully I get some cute babies from the mixing. My question is, when will he move to the top? Or will he? And when he does, do his current ladies follow him on up?
