    There are those on here who would strongly discourage this behavior b/c it would indicate the roo doesn't see you as "alpha". Personally, I would smile & tell him he's being a good provider, but if he started to try to "herd" you or mount your shoe or something like that, it's time to convince him you're not his gal... If they're young, they may just be coming into their "roo-ness" and show off for you. [​IMG]

    Yeah, I agree, probably not a really good idea, but OMG how sweet!!!!! My BLRW roo is the sweetest little (ummmm......HUGE) guy ever. They really are especially friendly, docile chickies!!!!
