    ok i have this young rooster i mean young he still peeps like a baby chick his name is Eagle, i thought it was a hen until what just happen i was sitting down watching my young chickens eat with my ducks i have 2 bantam hens in with them and a silkie rooster who watches over them. I was watching one of the bantam hens who is a silkie cochin mix but she looks just like a buff cochin but with black skin and 5 toes. Out of no where my baby rooster ,who is standard size easter egger mix with a bantam sizzle, mounts my buff hen and mates with her i was shocked [​IMG]. he's only 3 months old is that normal for a young roo?? i mean he's still my lil baby he peeps still he's smaller then his mama who is a bantam sizzle. My young RIR rooster just started making adult chicken sounds and he doesnt even do that lol. Eagle's father the standard size EE rooster was a horn dog he like to mate so did that past down to his lil son lol just weird. is it normal
