    Hey Ya'll. I was just wondering what you guys think as to why the BSL is the RIR roo's favorite?? I've seen him top the BR pullet (not yet laying) and the BSL. But I have noticed small bare spots on the back of all my hens' head (total of 5 laying hens), but the one you see him on, all the time seems like, is the black sexlink. WHy is that?!? [​IMG]

    Maybe she's the most submissive of the hens? My roo loved the BA's and ignored the SLW's (he was a SLW). The BA's are the most submissive making them 'easy' targets for his loving.

    My dominant rooster, quite a big fellow, loves my SLW the most. I had to get a shawl (or "saddle") for her, to protect her bare back.
