I have something that I am curious about. I have had a rooster who wants every hen I have and this to me is normal behavior. About 3 months ago I got a little Rhode Island Red hen who is so beautiful, very red in color. My little Frizzle Cochin Rooster after about two days abandoned all the other hens, He only is interested in his red beauty. They are always together. They slip off, just the two of them to be together. When she lays, he is in the nest with her. He is too small to get on the roost so he sleeps up on a bale of hay. She makes sure she sleeps right over him. He had never tried to roost but has tried his best since she came but can't. New chickens usually have to work their way through the pecking order. He protected her from the beginning, jumping any hen that messed with her. She has become quiet the arrogant little thing to the other hens. It is like he PUT her at the top of the pecking order in just a few days, Our Golden Comet is top of the pecking order for hens but Maxine the RIR is exempt from the pecking order. Has anyone ever had a scenario like this. I haven't.
