great shot of this Rooster
He's a handsome dude! Good luck, I hope he stays well-behaved. :)
I had one of those, too. Turned out to be a good thing as my other one was getting on in years.
We have an older guy and kept a young Rhodie. Both roos are Rhodies. Jake is old! He was mean as a snake when he was younger. Never went after me, but he nailed the hubby a couple of times. Nearly crippled him when he flogged the hubby's knee! Today Jake barely gets around. He mumbles like an old man everywhere he goes. Buddy is almost two and large and in charge. Apparently Jake nearly put out Buddy's eye when he was younger and now Buddy rules the roost and chases poor Jake all over the property. Buddy must have got him good a few days ago because Jake was stumbling and staying out of Buddy's sight. Jake is better, but the saying that animals root out the weak and sick is true. Jake gets no respect from any of the hens. He has to stand outside in the rain and cold waiting for Buddy to roost before he can sneak in and take his corner of the coop, well out of buddy's sight. I hope your young rooster doesn't treat your old timer bad. I feel like the old guys deserve respect, but in the animal world and most specifically the chicken world, an old rooster gets no respect and no breaks!
