My Seabright bantam rooster is trying to mate with the hens but they are all only 18 weeks old and I have not found any eggs yet. Do they have to be laying for him to try and mate with the hens? They are all free range so maybe they just aren't laying in their nests? I am also wondering if anyone has an ideas on how to make the linoleum floor or they coop not so slippery. They seem to slip when they fly down from the roost. I have about 4-5 inches of shavings but they still slip. Any ideas? Thanks!!!
