Back in May I purchased one Silver Duckwing OEGB rooster and two hens from the 'For Sale' section at a poultry show. They all came from different breeders, and I kept them in a very large dog crate with a kennel attached for a couple of months. They are currently living in a medium sized outdoor run(an aviary on it's side to provide more room, plus free range time, which they don’t really like) with the kennel in it for shelter. It is Winter in NZ so I don’t expect the hens to be laying, but I have not once seen the roo make any attempt to mate with either of the hens. He crows alot, has small sharp spurs and a dubbed comb. So why no mating? Is he just shy and won’t do it in front of me? Is he scared of the hens? Any ideas?
