    Just saw my RIR roo, Rudy, try to mount a hen! He has been chasing the girls around for over a week now, has grabbed one by the head, too, but today he actually tried to do 'the deed'! I don't think he did, but he is trying! Now girls...get to laying please!

    Quote:[​IMG] I know what you mean! Rocky, my younger (6 mo.) RIR roo will chase a hen (even one of his sisters [​IMG]) into the chicken yard from free-ranging and try to mount her. Well no sooner does the hen cry for help when Mr Rudy, the senior BO roo, comes flying as fast as he can--not to the rescue but rather to be FIRST..hehehe. It's really quite the show...[​IMG]
