I have a very nice Lavender Ameraucana Rooster in with 4 Easter Egger hens (I'm assuming as they are from Ideal Poultry and were called Ameraucanas) that I got from the feedstore. They've been laying for a month or more now, and I'm wondering whether or not the Rooster is doing his job. I have not seen him top the hens - ever. Well, that's not totally true. A while back one of my doxies managed to get through my legs and get to one of the hens and injured it quite severely. While the hen was just sitting there, I saw the Rooster run, jump on her, do his business and then get off. So I know he knows how, I just haven't seen him top any of the other hens in the pen. There is no chasing - loud cackling or anything. I decided to go ahead and put a batch of the eggs into the incubator and see if after 10 days or so any of them show to be fertile. Anybody else ever had a rooster that just doesn't seem to be interested in the other sex - unless the hen is totally imobile? What do you do about that?
