I have a 7 month old EE who has just been promoted (by me) to head of my 25 bird flock. I butchered the previous rooster this morning because he was quite prejudice on only mating my red hens and was pulling out their feathers, not to mention he was fathered by a particularly aggressive roo and I didn't want to risk him following in dad's foot steps... This yougin has been paired with an older hen (one of "dinner's" beating hens) for a few months now. I will see him occasionally breed some of the other hens, but the two follow each other constantly like a mated pair. Any thoughts on whether or not he will step up and be flock rooster? Or will he likely just keep hanging out with the old hen?
