Gidday all, I have three chickens, three hens and one rooster. Right now they are between 12 - 14 weeks old, and so far the young roo is a bit of a bully to the hens. He'll literally stand on food to make sure he gets his fair share (ie, all of it), will peck at the hens when they get too close to the feed, or for just no reason at all, and just essentially is a boisterous hungry bully boy. I am told that he will display more "rooster" traits down the line, such as being protective and sharing treats, I was just wondering if this is normal for a young roo right now? That is the hogging of food and bullying? Towards humans is a different personality altogether, mostly because we're the treat givers, but he'll run up to you, sit on your lap, be inquisative and very friendly towards you. He's never once shown aggression towards a human, only friendliness and delight for treats. He couldn't care less where the hens were, as long as he gets his treats! I'm basically just wondering if this is a normal stage in the roo's life, and that he'll grow out of it and the rooster instincts will kick in down the line. Also, is only three hens enough for a rooster? I don't want them overly molested or anything, we had intended for four hens but nature decided to throw a curveball! Thanks a lot!
