I recently let Tim and the six hens in with him out of their pen to be free now that I am done breeding for the year. They enjoyed their newfound freedom to its fullest. Only one hen hangs out with Tim now. The others have spread out amongst the flock and do their thing. In the evening they all still roost together though. Tim is one of my favorite roosters...he was my first show bird. He did well at show recieving first place in his breed. That would be impressive except he was the only one in his breed there, BUT with that being said...your bird can be judged and not recieve a placing at all...so I think that was a good mark. It is entertaining to see him go after the June bugs...he does a ballet of sorts when the bug starts to fly in circles he goes right along with the bug...and his long flowing tail is billowing as he spins around and around..it is kinda neat to see. He always catches the bugs for his girls...gives them right over.
