    Alright, I know a lot about my geese and ducks, but not so much about my chickens. I know that my rooster has been trying to mate, as he will climb atop a female. But, he'll fall off/ let the females yell at him to get off. Is this normal, or is he having problems? He has 22 hens at his disposal.

    It's normal for a rooster to not always be successful.
