The Little Peeper is a Barrel Rock his surrogate mother is the little banty, he is almost as big as the Big Rhode Island Red Rooster he as tall just not as heavy. I will send a picture when Alley gets home from school. He is a beautiful color and really struts around the run.
I got a chuckle out of your post. I have the 2 extremes, little horny toads or very intimidated. I have my first Rooster which is a Rhode Island Red and he is such a gentleman as well. I got 2 Cochin roosters later and they showed no real interest. What I learned is they are not the dominate of the yard and not an aggressive breed so until I separated them and put them and their hens together it just wasn't going to happen. In the privacy and security of their one space they have figured it out and FINALLY I am getting little feather legged babies. I also have a little crele old english rooster that has 5 hens with him and the only evidence I have that he is interested is fertile eggs.
Also depending on the breed, my boys didn't show interest until after they were 7 months old. Not sure how old your young roo is.
