    Tonight we witnessed our virgin to our knowledge rooster who was purchased as a chick in March old breed our Duck. He shows zero interest in the 4 month old pullets but is OBSESSED with our duck.

    Of course here is the handsome stud and his lover- I don't know what the duck is but the roo is supposed to be Amberlink. the black ducks the one in question [​IMG]

    Some of ours will try to mate with anything. The weirdest thing I ever had to witness was a banty roo trying to mate my sons soccer ball. He would climb on top of it and do his little man dance. People who own chickens cannot explain such behavior to nonchicken owners for sure !!!! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
