    If he's a pullet roo perhaps he'll mate himself and hatch the chicks! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    (Pullet is the term used to describe young female chickens [​IMG] )

    To answer your question, when he's of age he'll likely mate just about anything that'll let him. [​IMG]

    YOung roosters are the worst. They are extra "romantic" and they are very rough about the whole process.
