Hi A couple of weeks ago we bought a pair of buff orpingtons. The 10 month old rooster was proven since he had been kept in isolation with his hen who had then gone on to hatch chicks. When they first arrived I cracked an egg from the female orpington and saw it had a white spot indicating it was fertile. Since then no of her eggs are fertile. Over two weeks I have never seenhim mount her once. For the first couple of days when I just bought him , he would mount the other four chickens in my flock but now he doesnt mount any of them so maybe he was just establishing pecking order? I really want to hatch some chicks , why isnt my rooster mating?
