Sounds like normal chicken behavior.  He's ready for mating, and the pullets are not.

I have 5 young cockerels that started showing an interest in the young pullets at 12 weeks. Of course the ladies weren't receptive to their attentions but it was still amusing to see the older roosters step in and teach the adolescents some manners.
