Ok.. I have a 24 week old Ameracauna roo that is from show lines and I've found they mature slowly as this guy has no courting traits at all.. he has never even tried to crow. Well the good news is he did the dance around one of my 18 week old pullets (isa browns) she walked away.. he went up to her again and did it with an attempt to mount her.. she walked away.. but not before getting the attention of my Leghorn roo around the same age that came here around 21 weeks old and was full of testosterone, he feeds his girls, courts them and treats them very well.. Well.. the leghorn went over to the same pullet and mounted her successfully, he did his thing and got off her... Now I assume he is letting the Amera Roo know that she is his girl as well as the older 4 hens. Question here is.. If my Roo is mounting my pullet outta territory, is she getting ready to lay early?? and why did she let the roo breed her if she is not laying? thanks in advance. UPDATE: Well, Its the 17th of October and as I was drinking my coffee I saw Leghorn on one of the Isa Browns again, (I've got two with really developed combs) And I went out to clean up the coop and do my thing and behold.. an egg.. a beautiful pullet egg... She was in the box yesterday moving the 2 eggs that that the others had laid around so nicely.. she had a squat look about her, but never sat. Well I'm so excited.. This is the $2875.00 egg..
