I have a roo that we hatched last summer, he was born on July 1st. Come last fall he was starting to mount the hens and assume his roll as the Man of the flock(calling for treats, happy feet dance after an egg laid, etc etc).
Since winter arrived I have not seen him mount any hens in months and I'm getting worried. I'd like to hatch some of our eggs this spring but if the rooster is not doing his part I'll have to buy hatching eggs to raise.
So is the sex drive of a rooster seasonal, ie will he start to mount the hens again as the weather warms and the days become longer?
