    Do all roosters breed?

    I have four roosters that were raised together. They are 6 months old. The top guy has been very forward since he was a baby chick. And friendly.... almost obsessed with being with us Humans when we are in the chicken coop or yard.
    Now that the boys are pretty much grown, they all have established their pecking order, but no one has ever messed with Zorro. He is very protective and is in the middle of ANYTHING going on in the barnyard. But I haven't seen him fight or jump anyone, either.
    All of the boys are breeding the hens and sparring with each other, EXCEPT Zorro. He struts around like he owns the world, but shows no interest in the girls. Is he gay?

    Hmmm, what a dilemma. Here's a few clues:

    1. He knows the difference between curtains and window treatments.
    2. He watches Martha Stewart's Living regularly.
    3. He has a throw pillow in the chicken coop.
    4. He asks you , "Do these pants make my butt look big?"
    5. You catch him wearing pumps.
    6. Richard Gere keeps calling and asking to speak with him.
    7. When he crows he says, "Sssssssuper!"
    8. He knows the difference between "seafoam" and "celadon".
    9. He gets drunk and impersonates Bette Davis.

    Quote:They were all raised together. They have been free ranging for about 10 or 12 weeks.

    Quote:I don't mind him being gay. I am a liberal thinker. [​IMG] Some of my favorite people are gay. I just wondered if anyone had heard of it. I will search.

    I have another rooster of his breed, so we are good.

    If I go out and the coop is redecorated in victorian or modern cottage, I will know for sure!
