That's a bit young, he's going to be trouble.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I don't usually see mating behavior until 4-6 months of age, you can separate him if he becomes too obnoxious. Sometimes I separate out trouble making young roosters and allow them to mature. Your hens won't want his advancements until they are close to laying.
