    Sounds like your funny Roo might be exhibiting breeding traits. No idea why the hens are not laying, could be the change in season. It's my understanding a minimum of 14 hours of light is needed.

    The rooster dance !! AKA: flogging. Most of my roosters do it also, they lower one wing and start dancing, its a mating thing !!
