When I let the girls (and boy) out this morning, for the second morning in a row he chased the girls. He was able to get one somewhat into submission (the SLW) but didn’t succeed in mounting her. The Australorp saw what was going on, by that time the rooster had “fallen off” the SLW, and she came over and pecked the rooster! It was like she was telling him to back off of the SLW. Is this normal? Do I have a sissy rooster who will never be able to mate with my girls? It’s all new. This is only the second day I’ve seen him attempt to mate them. He is a silkie and they are standard size girls.
