My 2 little chicks turned 4 months old this weekend. To celebrate this milestone, the little cockerel tired to mount his "sister" (they're probably are not related - picked from a group of 30 or more chicks). WTH? He hasn't even tried crowing yet! At least he knew better than to try anything with the Big Girls. They would have had him for lunch. Any tips or handling a teenage roo? I do pick him up and hold him until he settles, but I've been doing that with both babies to get them used to being handled. Also take them from the roosts by putting a hand under their breasts so they step onto my hand. I'd like a well-mannered rooster if I have to have one at all.
