Hi All, I have 27 hens (half RIR's, half EE's) and 1 EE cockerel, all around 7 months old. The cockerel only seems to be mounting a couple of the hens and two in particular are starting to show some serious wear on their backsides. I am wondering if he will get busy with more of the hens as he matures or if he is likely to stay with just these few? I know I can use a saddle and would be willing to for a while but if it will not stop then he will have to go! Anyone know what the chances are of him adding to his repertoire!
