    I'm renaming Robbie the Rooster to Casanova. [​IMG] The roo is slick and doesn't even crow. Crooked Toes, my other rooster, does all the crowing and whatnot. Casanova is a big RIR who doesn't crow who is with the EE and BO girls, and until recently, I didn't even know he was breeding my EEs. That was until I opened an egg and saw it was fertilized.

    I really wondered if he was too big to breed them, but obviously not. I caught him today squashing one of my girls flat while mating with her. Evidently, she likes that kind of treatment. [​IMG]

    So far, none of the girls seem worse for the wear, but I guess I'll have to keep an eye on them. As I said, he doesn't crow, which makes him a wonderful rooster.

    I would still keep Crooked Toes for the crowing part. I will bet that Casanova would start if the job wasn't being taken care of already. [​IMG]
