Roger is Becoming a Rooster

Roger’s new green tail feathers

Roger is sprouting pretty green tail feathers and has begun to crow.

Roger has learned to crow.

His crow is a little crackly, but getting stronger by the day. He’s 20-22 weeks old now, has grown a lot and is nearly the size of the plump Garys (the fully grown Barred Rock laying hens). He’s a pretty nice rooster, not too aggressive with the young Australorp and Rhode Island Red pullets and, so far, still intimidated by the fully grown, daring and adventurous Garys.
