I have two roosters, I'd say they're just at about 1 yr old or will be by the end of the month. The alpha is doing damage to the hens, I've seen him mate and he's not aggressive with them. He just seems clumsy about it all compared to the other one. I've got my girls in polar fleece saddles, but now their wings are getting a bit beaten up during the mating process. I have two roosters to 9 hens, my order of 8 chicks ought to be in the store the first week of April. I didn't really want more chickens, but figured I'd up the ratio in hopes it solves this. I like him, he's a good boy and good to the girls and other roo. I've read here that roosters can be clumsy with mating until they mature, about what age would that be? At a year old, does he still have a lot of maturing to do?
