    My light brahma has been doing things with the hens. This morning the closest hen to him was eating and he suddenly pecked at the back of her head and it looked like he was trying to hold her down. While he was doing it appeared that he was trying to mount her. She was making alot of noise and trying to get away from him. I researched some stuff and I'm wondering...Is he trying (or is) to mate with them?

    Yes. That's how it starts.
