I hope this is the right place for this topic. My rooster is 19 weeks old, he has been trying to mate with the hens for a couple weeks now and his tactic is to grab onto her comb and hop on. I've never seen him try to mate with the easter eggers that don't have a comb and it seems when he does mount the hens they are so freaked out they fuss and he mounts them wrong. Sometimes he's hanging off one side other times he's hanging off the other. Half the time he doesn't even get to mount before he lets go or she breaks free. Will he figure it out or is he possibly doing the job it just seems sloppy? I don't know what to make of it because I want to buy an incubator and hatch some eggs some time. Also I've heard fertilized eggs have a red blood spot in the yolk. Is that true for all fertilized eggs or does that only happen if they've been sat on/incubated for awhile. Thanks.
