Hello,

Did you just put him with them?
I had the same problem!

Do not worry, it is normal.
They want to grow with him and make sure he's nice.

He will in a week!!

Are your hens laying eggs now? If so, they should be mating. How old is the rooster?

Okay, do you have a picture of his face?
This sounds weird, but since I had the same problem...

If his beak overlapped a lot, it can stop him from mating the girls.
