So these questions have absolutely nothing to do with one another... 1. I have a 4 1/2 month frizzle roo that has been trying to do the 'wild thing' with the ladies for the last month or so, but today I saw him actually succeed with one of the hens (a 5ish month RIR). She actually cooperated and let him do his thing. My question is why did she suddenly decide to let him? Does that mean she's getting ready to lay? Or that she might already be laying (they free range all day, so I prolly won't see the eggs when the start). 2. Why does my rooster sing the "egg laying song"? I've caught him doing in about a dozen times now. The first 5 or 6 times he did it I thought for sure it was one of the ladies and when running like crazy through the yard trying to find the "secret" nest that they were laying in...then after about 5-10 mins or so, I finally figured out that it was him. Does he just like watching me make an idiot of myself or is there some purpose to him singing the egg song? Thanks!
