This is a bit of a follow on from this thread https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=92174 Its been a while now and Paxo is still as lovely as ever. I bought some little cochin hens, and as one is squatting and brooding on her nest I had guessed it was time to bring Paxo in to do his thing... But the hen is being nasty to him, and he doesnt seem rough and tough enough to make her respect him and do the deed I have Paxo on loan from his owners, and I will need to return him soon, can anyone give me any advice on how I can encourage romance between these two? I have two other cochin hens the same age as the broody hen, but they havent laid eggs or squatted, so im assuming they are not yet mature enough for breeding? This rooster really is something special and I would love to keep his lines going.
