I have 5 8week old New Hampshires, and 2 of them have been obvious cockerels from 4 weeks already. They are reasonably tame but don't like being handled. I have been treating them for a really bad swarm of gnats that follows them into the coop every evening. They're all very healthy otherwise. The one cockerel tries to get away when I pick him up, just like the others, but once I'm holding him he immediately lies down and doesn't move again until I'm finished with him. Is this normal behaviour? Sorry if this is a silly question, I'm just curious because I've never seen this with any of the 34 other chickens I've had so far. I've heard that pullets will squat when they're getting close to laying, but they're still too young for that and I'm pretty sure he's a cockerel. He's also darker than the others so I have been wondering if the breeder accidently gave me a RIR.
