Will a roo attempt to breed a pullet if she is not close to laying eggs? I have Ameraucana's that are 24 weeks old and the last few days the roo's have been doing the dance for the girls and have tried a couple of times to attempt to mate them. I do have other hen's that are laying and they do mate them, so they know how to do it, but I was suprised when I saw them dancing for my ameraucana girls. Does that mean that they are getting close to laying??
