I bought 10 hens from a farm. They are between 1-2 years old. They have been laying from day 1 since we got them 2 weeks ago. 4 days ago I bought an ameraucana rooster. He is 1.5 years old and non aggressive. It integrated without issues. We noticed that it sits on nests, makes nests, and sits with a laying hen or stands by the laying hen until she is finished. Sometimes he makes hen sounds as if he is laying eggs. He vocalizes in many different ways. We are not seeing any action to mount the hens. I know it takes only a few seconds so he may be doing it when we are not watching. I was wondering if there is any pattern for the rooster to mount the hens. How often does it happen and when (morning before they get out of the coop, or any time)? When I was a kid I saw my grandparents' flock do it all day any time.
