This is my First flock of 4. One recently revealed himself to be a roo. The gals are not laying age just yet but getting close. Mr Marvin Roo is showing his oats a little bit but the gals ain't having it. So my question is, how does a roo politely ask to mate? He chases them, they run, duck, n cover. Today for the first time I saw him try to grip the back of the neck of one of the girls. She put up a big squawk and he let go. Was that a polite request as opposed to just chasing or did he cross the line. The one he grabbed is my special needs girl so I worry. Buy the way he will be rehomed at some near future point.My Buff Orpington is a very sweet gentleman. He has never tried to attack me, or anyone else. He asks to mate, and my girls usually say no, and he takes it for an answer.
