    This is normal mating behavior for roos, watch that he doesn't bare the back of a favorite hen, that also happens.

    A saddle, just like for a horse, will protect their backs when the rooster actually mounts them. It can take awhile for you to see feather loss. Some of them also have shoulder protectors if you notice loss on the wings.
