    I was watching my rooster free range with the other chickens today, and he was going about his 'buisness' [​IMG] ... Then I saw him do his 'buisness'on a chicken I thought was rooster! I was like [​IMG] . Is this normal for him to 'buisness' everybody in the flock? [​IMG] (I laughed the whole time typing this, I am so immature [​IMG] )

    Believe me, it's possible. I've seen female pigeons mounting male ones, and a dominant male quail mate with a juvenile male. It happens.....[​IMG]

    It's possible. It's something to do with dominance.

    [​IMG] This is so funny! I am very glad though it is normal. [​IMG]

    I, too, would hate to be anything but the dominant rooster... [​IMG]

    Can't help but laugh at that. My male dog has another male dog friend who does that to him, too. "Dominance thing"
