    And the feelings right...unless you are the 16 week old WL/EE mix cockerel who is wing dancing all the old pullets and attempting to charm the 48 week old WL by suddenly leaping on her back and riding her like a bull. He's going home alone. And she's still cussing him out from the comfort of her friends. Meanwhile the 36 week old Silkie roo wonders why the ladies don't want to go home with him either.

    Oh what a night!

    Uhoh, looks like the 49 week old Snow White has found her Mr. Goodbar. He now sits on the roost next to her at night and has been spotted mating her pretty regularly. I guess all that practice of his finally paid off.

    I was watching the crows yesterday and one was standing on another one sideways. I wanted to yell out there that he had it a little wrong but the other one persuaded him pretty quickly.

    Haha! Too funny!

    The other thing that makes me laugh is watching my little 37 week old silkie cockerel attempt to mount my big 37 week old lavender orpingtons. He jumps on like he's riding a rodeo bull until they toss him off. Which is usually right away. He misses his mark a lot. Once I even saw him get up facing the wrong way and he had the nerve to turn around while on her back. She wasn't pleased with that move. Lol!

    I had a little half cornish half orpington that was raised with a meatie (don't ask - long story) that would ride that meatie. It was hilarious! He wasn't trying to mount it, just show dominanance, but that was the funniest thing. It was not old enough to want to breed but seeing that little terd jump up there and grab the meaty's neck neck feathers who was easily 4 times his size and "ride," well, I just wish I'd gotten a video of it.

    One of my young rooster started practising on the hens recently. He cornered one the other day and mounted her, back to front. That poor hen was squatting there with the roo's backside in her face, looking rather unimpressed. It was so funny!
    But the best yet was a 7 week old roo that got ideas about a hen one day. He mounted her like a pro, grabbed the back of her neck and rode her, cheeping his head off. (He's now one of my friend's top breeding roosters.) That poor hen didn't know what to do!
