In the Brooder
- Jun 2, 2010
I recently acquired a young bantam rooster - I think he's about 9 months old. He's only just started crowing and filling out to what I assume will be his full size (I'm new to bantams). He's 1 of 7 and the rest of the flock is standard sized hens, a variety of ages and breeds. Right now he's at the very bottom of the pecking order but is pretty good at bobbing and weaving out of the way. Due to his size, will he always be the underdog? Will he ever be top chicken? He hasn't even attempted to breed with any of the girls, will it happen?
