Hello, all! My 5-month old Ameraucana rooster is starting to do the rooster dance, but I have read differing opinions on what it means. He only did it to me once, which earned him a 30-minute "time out" in the crook of my arm to remind him who's boss. However, he also does the rooster dance to the hens, but it doesn't lead to mating. In fact, usually the chosen hen runs away, then he simply does it to the next closest hen. The few times I have seen him mate, it seems to be a complete surprise to the hen. Is this dance really for mating with the hens or does my rooster think he somehow has to dominate the hens? He is the only rooster, and all of the chickens are the same age. Thanks!
