    I have a young aracauna roo that I raised from a day old chick. He has started to crow and is becoming VERY interested in the ladies in the back yard. I also have several ducks and he has become enamored with with my muscovey hens to the point of mating with them. I may have the 1st "chuck" or "dicken" soon if he doesn't get things squared away soon (lol). Has anybody else seen this type of behavior before??

  2. It is what roos do ya know. Turkey males are even worse. They will mate with a tree trunk I think.
