Anyone else experienced this? My little rooster, now 18 weeks is reaching maturity, and showing signs of being ready to mate. He has not chosen a hen...but has seemed to be showing interest in me?!?! It's kinda cute, he drops his wing and dances around me, chases other hens and roosters away from me, makes a cooing noise, jumps into the nest box and "preps" it, then crows. He must've heard a few roosters are going, and he really needs to show me a reason why he needs to stay. HAHA! Is this normal behavior? I love that he jumps into my lap and snuggles. I watched the little guy hatch too, so maybe imprinting? Do chickens do that? He's a special guy, and probably going to keep him, but don't tell him that! Don't want him to turn nasty on me!
