Do roos typically breed all of the hens or just their favorites?
Mine breeds the one's he can catch. My girls run like crazy...
Yep, mine gets anyone that is willing. He must get them all though because I've yet to have an infertile egg.
My rooster gets all the girls but he seems to have a couple favorites - either that or they are just the slower ones!
I can't wait to watch this rite of passage with my boys.
when you do see it......try to sing the
"bon - chicka- bon bon" song
( its from a commercial where the girls smell a guy and start dancing and singing that cheesey "adult movie type" song.....)
my little roo jumps on, looses balance and falls off...
he's 1 year old now and has more practice so not as clumsy.
I was wondering about this too - my roo only "services" one of the girls - and totally ignores the other one, except to peck her and chase her when she comes out of the coop in the morning. He often snuggles with his favorite girl too, while the other sits alone. I didn't think chickens chose mates!
I need to get a couple more hens to keep the poor little third wheel company.
I have a few roos to make sure all of the girls will have fertile eggs...
