My little flock are all the same age....nearly 17 weeks. 2 roos, one is slightly smaller than the other, but neither has really established an alpha position that I can tell. (I watch carefully every day..I don't want any fighting). Max, the littler one, has started trying to mount the girls, not with much luck I must say, but trying nonetheless. Do the boys mature faster? Do I need to separate them until the girls are ready? How will I know? Should I just leave them alone and keep a watchful eye? I kinda want to think that keeping them apart would be not such a good thing. I want everyone to be happy. They have been together since 3 days old. But I also don't want the girls to be afraid or feel threatened...oh the dilemma! Please help...thanks so much.
