I have this little bantam Delaware cockerel that loves to snuggle BUT when I go to put him down he acts like my hand/wrist is a hen & he goes to town. Is this a dominance thing like with dogs? Is he claiming me?😂

Does he not have girls of his own? It's sexual frustration and you are his main squeeze ATM.

He was purchased in a group of 5 & appears 2 are hens but hard to tell because one is a Silkie & one is a frizzle. I have added 4 more younger silkies but not sure if hens or Roos yet. They are all under 6 months including my little boyfriend.
