My beloved cockerell Melvin is a little over 6 months old and I want him to mate (even if it is early and he may not be ready). He's a coronation sussex and wonderful! But my girls just won't let him mate with them. Melvin tries and they fight back. Melvin goes near Envy (he seems to like her the most) and Envy will spar at him and he'll flee. He's a big boy I think he should at least mate with one of my various mutts, but why won't my girls let him? They wouldn't let my previous roos mate with them either.
