    I did a search and couldn't find a thread. My uncle lives below us and his rooster has come calling on my girls. I think he mated with one of my Australorps but it was over before I could even be sure it happened. Can I assume it did?

    Yeeeup. It''s pretty quick with an experienced rooster.

    Alrighty then, I kind of like having the rooster free range with my girls. Since Thursday he has been coming up the road to visit then he heads home in the evening. He doesn't pester them continually and a couple of them seem to prefer to hang out with him. He is huge and appears to be gentle with the girls but took on one of the confused peacocks who hang out with our girls too.
