    Hello! I was wanting to breed my old english bantam rooster to my wyandotte hens using AI, but i noticed he doesn’t react at all to the stimulation and i know he is old enough. why isn’t he sexually active?

    Hello! I’d he in with hens right now? If so I would seperate him for 4days to a week. Then put him with a hen and let him do some dancing and THEN try milking him.

    he is in with them, i was wondering if it has to do with him being with two older, larger roosters. he was there first, but obviously the two biggest roosters took dominance. is this why? he doesn’t even show interest in his OEGB hens.

    He is saying you have to pull him out and make him live alone for a week.....then he will have interest and things will work.
