Rooster and Hen 101

Rooster and Hen 101

Roosters and hens are chickens. A rooster is a male chicken. A hen is a female chicken. A chick is a baby chicken.

Roosters and hens enjoy the company of their family, also known as a flock.

Roosters and hens have different personalities just like you and me! Some are shy and some are outgoing. Some are very talkative and some are quiet.

Roosters are gallant (kind and giving)! When roosters find a tasty treat they’ll call to their flock and share it! This is called tidbitting.

Roosters are protective. They will give their life to protect their flock.

Roosters crow early in the morning and throughout the day!

Roosters and hens are curious! They’ll use their beaks to discovery new objects and food.

Roosters and hens enjoy dust baths and often ‘purr’ when they are stroked.

Roosters and hens are sensitive, especially their beaks!

Roosters and hens learn from watching each other, demonstrate self control, worry about the future, and even have cultural knowledge that is passed from generation to generation.

A rooster will find the perfect spot for a hen to lay her eggs. Hens are devoted mothers and communicate with their chicks in their eggs before they hatch. They turn over each egg around 30 times a day to keep them healthy inside.

If an animal is part of your family, think of yourself as an animal caregiver instead of an owner.
