Hi Cody A,
if you have something like a winter where your are, wait for spring with breeding. You will get better results. My theory is, that the boys have a quite low testosteron level. They are big and have in to produce a lot. Somehow Vitamin D is connected to the testosteron production. For Vitamin D the birds need sun light and lots of fresh greens. In winter both greens and sun light are rare.... and maybe this is the reason why Desert Chick has very active roosters. I presume that in Arizone sun light is a more or less unlimited resource.
