    Some of my roosters keep trying to mate my kittens and the other day our male Muscovy tried to mate one of the male chickens. Is this 'normal' behavior or are my birds a little on the weird side? We have many female chickens and a female duck.

    Yes, this is normal behavior. Male chickens and ducks, especially fiesty young males, will often try to "mate" other creatures.

    Just wait until you find a rooster trying to mate with your foot or head....
