    My 4 month old Serama Roo loves me. I hatched him as an only Serama & fed him by hand.
    The 2 Searma hens I brought home for him 2 weeks ago have pleased him aplenty!eexact same age....16 weeks old?.
    .Seems my larger/older "girls" weren't receptive of his romantic advances.
    But now he is terribly aggresive with all but his 2 little hens.l:<((

    what say yee folks........birds of a feather will always flock together???
    TIA

    Not sure.... all my roos are really gentle and love all the ladies...
    Might be my line though.....

    Are the larger/older girls also Serama....hmmmm

    Maybe they started it?

    Quote:They are standard sized and he was tormenting them to pieces before the 2 loittle hens his size arriv4d. My SLW is 5 months old or so....she would just look at him like he was nuts. But he chased and really made my little creve so nervous so I had to seperate them. And my Polish hen too. They want no part of Shorty.LOLOL

    Yet he leads his little gals around my yard like a prince. Calling them to treats he finds. I love watching them.........

    That is so funny. [​IMG] What a silly little guy!!!

    Most of my loose Serama roos ignore the bigger birds, they all just hang out...... but I hear that they can be fiesty!
    .............Maybe its because I also have a free range White Rock roo and Red Bro roo (that is near turkey size) and they dont feel like starting a fight when those HUGE guys are around to hear it...

    I have the other million seramas all in separate breeding pens or tractors, so they dont get a chance to be with the big guys. Maybe they like it that way, lol. That Red Bro is Huuuuuuge!!
