When a rooster comes across a tasty morsel of food, he does a little dance and song to let the hens know about his discovery. This behavior is called tidbitting. It’s fascinating to watch. When the hens come, he lets them eat first. Roosters are such gentlemen.
In this video, the hens have just been rescued from a battery cage operation and have never met a rooster before. They don’t know that he is calling them to share a grape, but will learn very soon. PS: Kennedy, the gentleman rooster starring in this video, is available for adoption at Animal Place.
