Despite the massive size of my rooster, he just started crowing about 10 days ago. Today, as I was preparing their breakfast, I saw my roo do his thing for what i believe is the first time. Then he grabbed another hen a while later, and hes been chasing the others all morning!! He's an animal! The unfortunate part is that the hen he "stepped on" is one of the most skiddish and flighty I've got. However that will not dampen my spirits. My question. None of my ladies have produced any eggs yet fertile or otherwise. Will this mating kick off egg production or will I have to wait for my ladies to catch up with the roo?
