    I just saw one of my Sussex roos doing his thing with a Sussex hen. They are only 9 weeks old! Is it just a play thing or are they maturing???

    I would say they are practicing, but who knows! I did not notice that until mine were about 16 weeks, but some mature faster than others. Maybe someone with more knowlegde can tell you more.

    Good luck! [​IMG]
