Do roosters know which pullets are laying? Some back-story. I have three age groups in my flock: 24 weekers - 4 EE's and 4 white silkies. 22 weekers - the "variety pack" 18 weekers - 4 Blue Wheaton Ameracaunas and 2 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes 2, possibly 3, of my EE's are laying, and so are my Cuckoo Marans and Barred Rock from the 22 weekers. Bogie is my Exchequer Leghorn roo, also a 22 weeker. This evening, I observed him mating 2 of the EE's and both the Marans and the Barred Rock. He didn't so much as look at any of the other ladies, even the two exchequer pullets! Does he know?!? And while I've got you here, do I have this right: An EE + a non-EE (ie Bogie)= an EE An Ameracauna + a non-Ameracauna= an EE?
