I have a beautiful Black Copper Marans rooster that was hatched on 11/21/09. He is as big now, as most of my hens who were hatched last April, and is bigger than the Ameracauna.

I noticed the other day that he has been trying to mount Zoey, our Barred Rock. Is he too young to be starting that?

Thank you,
Kristy

"too young" for sex is a human created concept. we tend to put rules and regulations on our innate nature (thus socialization). it is the classic id, ego, superego concept.

Right about the time he stops trying to mate with their heads.
