Hi! I have a small flock consisting of 4 standard hens, 1 standard pullet, 1 bantam pullet, and 2 bantam cockerels. I know that is likely too many boys, but it is what it is, and I will deal with it when I have to. One of the cockerels is clearly the "alpha." He has taken charge of the same age chicks and does all the things cockerels do: tidbitting, the wing dance, flirting, protecting. He's trying to make progress with the hens, but they don't take him very seriously. He dances for them and sometimes pecks at them (not viciously). For the most part, they ignore him. Sometimes they will run him off. Sometimes they run away. He's only about 3.5 months old, but I'm curious. When will they start taking him seriously? Or is he too small? He's a Sebright, after all. Just fyi: The other cockerel is a Silkie. Same age, but no evidence of raging hormones yet, and there won't be for months, I doubt. TIA!
