    Recently, my roo has started laying low and spreading his wings like he's ready to be mounted, ( I'm dying of embarrasment typing this) when I go to pick him up. Is this normal? I've only seen it with my hens, so I'm just a little baffled.[​IMG]

    I'm always confused and clueless, otherwise what swampwander said!
     
  4. GOOD THING. pick him up and carry him around with you. Do this often as he will be challenging you if you do not.

    I'm pretty sure it's a boy. Cotton is our White Crested Polish and he has more of that rocker look to his top feathers as opposed to the girls who have that wider do.
