    Our little baby boy grew up today! He started discovering his voice and his crow. Then he got all frisky with the other girls. He hoped on each of the two hens that are laying. Each "experience" happened so fast...about 5-10 seconds per girl.

    Is that all it takes for him to fertilize them? Or is he just trying to figure out how to do his business?


    If he did fertilize the ladies, how long until they start laying the fertile eggs?

    Thanks!!!

    Unfortunately, that's all it takes for many species.

    He's about the same age.

    I thought he was never gonna crow, but then I separated the hens to check on them, and he started getting upset and crowed.

    Haa Haa Swtangel!


    Yeah, it's so funny to see them first crow. He made a little one and kind of looked around to see where it came from. Then he realized it was him and kept crowing over and over again.

    It was pretty cool to see him figure out his voice! My baby's all grown up [​IMG] HAA HAA!

    P.S. I saw that you are due in Feb! Congratulations! Keep us updated!!!
