Our Rooster Has It Backwards

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

Our rooster (7.5 months old) is mounting all 10 hens in his/our flock.  He is neither tactful nor gentle but has at least started dancing a little after copulation.  I'm wondering if he will learn to do the courting before the wham-bam, thank you ma'am.  Any opinions?

It generally takes all young males a bit to become civilized in the reproductive process.  :old

 

He will perfect his skills.  Right now the testosterone is raging.

Most teenage males aren't into wooing much  ;). They settle down as they mature.
