    I am wondering if anybody else has seen this happen. I have a young Buff Orp roo that is around 1 yr old. He i chasing and riding two of my Muscovy girls. Will i end up with my first "dicken" or "chuck", lol??I laugh every time i see him take off to ride one of his girls.

    Poor young roos. They'd be almost like teenage boys, except roos don't get a face full of zits.

    Quote:If it's the one you have a pic of in your avatar, that's definitely a roo. He's either confused or henpecked really bad.

    Yes, that's my confused boy in that photo. He does have some fairly large cochin hens to contend with!
