    I didn't say he's fat. I said unless he's fat....he should be able to cover hens at age 4 yrs.

    Eh[​IMG], When I had a bunch of feisty roosters in their own coop to separate them from the hens before a show, they were mounting each other, and it wasn't just a dominance thing... because there was the unmistakable white thick semen on their backs...[​IMG]
